It seems like New Yorkers have been getting really lucky when it comes to the lottery recently. If you purchased a ticket for the Mega Millions, you could be a big winner.

According to the Mega Millions website, one New Yorker is pretty lucky.

The winning ticket in the March 8 drawing for the Mega Millions was sold somewhere in New York. You better check your ticket if you purchased one as soon as possible, because it's a jackpot winning ticket. That means you could be the winner of $126 million, or, if you'd like to take home the cash value - $84.5 million.

That's a LOT of money. What would you do with it if you won?

How Exactly Does One Play The Mega Millions?

According to the game website, Mega Millions drawings are held Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 pm ET. Five white balls are drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 70; one gold Mega Ball is drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 25. You win if the numbers on one row of your ticket match the numbers of the balls drawn on that date. There are nine ways to win a prize, from $2 to the jackpot. If no one wins the jackpot, the money is added to the jackpot for the next drawing. Overall chances of winning a prize are 1 in 24.

It was one year ago that Leonard and Lorraine Padavan of Blossvale claimed the jackpot from the Mega Millions drawing. The couple chose to split the jackpot evenly. Each receive a single lump sum of $23,016,702 after required withholdings. Leonard and Lorraine says they plan to pool their money to buy an RV and live out their dreams.
