What would you do if you won the lottery?

Winner of the Staten Island Powerball, hitter The 2018 $245.6 million jackpot just paid out $4 million for Westchester housing.

The buyer, Nandlall Mangal, a Guyanese-born carpenter, bought a $6 Quick Pick ticket while shopping for groceries at the Stop & Shop supermarket on Hylan Boulevard that August. After returning to his humble ranch house in Dope, he put away his groceries and tossed his ticket to the side. Mangal reportedly said at the time that he only bought lottery tickets a few times, usually when the jackpot was above $100 million. But after that discarded – and won – ticket sat in its place for days and no one claimed the winnings, he decided to take a look at it.

“Since I was out of town, the ticket sat on my kitchen table for a week,” he told reporters at the time of his victory on a trip to Ocean City, Maryland.

His one lump-sum payment totaled $99.32 million after tax. However, the victory took a dark turn.

Mangal didn’t check his winning lottery tickets until after returning from his vacation in Maryland.
