Someone woke up on Wednesday being $ 432 million richer after the ticket he bought at a New York pizzeria matched the six numbers of the Mega Millions drawing (one of the two largest prizes in the United States) on Tuesday for the night, according to officials of this lottery.

The ticket was purchased at Pronto Pizza, on 48th Street and Sixth Avenue,

a short walk from Rockefeller Center in Manhattan

.

The winning numbers were 36, 41, 45, 51 and 56, with the Mega Ball number being 13.

The odds of winning were one in 302 million

, according to the New York Lottery website.

The winner will be able to choose between collecting 315 million dollars or receiving payments spread over decades of the total prize.

New York doesn't allow lottery winners of this size to remain anonymous, but there are other ways to keep it a secret: In 2019, a group of 23 people from Long Island collected their $ 437 million ticket funds through from a Limited Liability Company (LLC).

A person in Connecticut also won a million dollars in Tuesday night's drawing

The lottery returns to excite millions of people at the beginning of the year

The last time someone won the Mega Millions drawing was in June, in Crestwood, Illinois, according to the Mega Millions website.

New York has had other winners this year.

An upstate couple earned $ 96 million in February.

But the biggest prize this year was in January

, when a winning ticket worth more than $ 1 billion was sold in Michigan.

The Mega Millions jackpot will once again be $ 20 million, and the next drawing will be on Friday.

And the Powerball lottery has an even bigger jackpot:

$ 490 million.

Your drawing will be tonight: 10:59 PM (Eastern Time).

To win it you have to hit 5 numbers plus the Powerball.
