New York – A Bronx bartender wins $7 million after scratching a Cash Blowout lottery ticket

On Wednesday the 12th of April, after dropping off some clothes at a laundromat, Michael Moriarty, 56, who works as a bartender in the Bronx walked to Woodlawn Gift Shop on Katonah Avenue in the Bronx and purchased a $25 Cash Blowout lottery ticket. Moriarty was on his way to meet his daughter and quickly scratched the ticket in the store. Once Moriarty realized what he had won, he lost his breath and had to steady himself. “I bent over and grabbed my knees,” said Moriarty. “Then I stood back up and (the sales clerk) asked me if I was going to be sick. And I said, ‘Maybe!’” After picking up his daughter, Moriarty drove directly to Empire City Casino and claimed the ticket. Moriarty has opted to take the one-time lump sum payment, and will be receiving $4,361,280 after taxes. “I honestly have no clue what I will do with the winnings. To start, I’ll take care of my family. I’ll have to think about what I’ll do after that.” said Moriarty.
