Dutchess $1M Lottery Winner A Local Resident, Store Says

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y. -- Hopewell Junction has a new millionaire, but no one is naming names.

According to employees where the winning ticket was sold, the $1 million Mega Millions winning ticket sold on Tuesday, April 18, paid out a cool million to a "local."

The store's manager said the winner is someone who comes in the store "all the time," and has turned in their ticket to claim their winnings. She added that the person wishes to remain anonymous.

The quick-pick ticket, purchased at Smokes 4 Less at 814 Route 82, had the five winning numbers of 8, 29, 30, 43, 64, but not the Mega Ball of 6. To win the giant jackpot, players have to match all six numbers, New York State Lottery officials said.
