HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y. -- No one hit the big $38 million jackpot during Tuesday night's New York Mega Millions, but one lucky person purchased a ticket worth $1 million in Hopewell Junction, according to New York Lottery officials.
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, officials said.
The new millionaire now has a year to claim their prize, officials added.
The New York Lottery contributed more than $3 billion to education in the state during 2015-16.
