Staten Island, New York – A construction worker wins a $245.6 Million Powerball lottery jackpot

After purchasing a $6 Quick Pick Powerball lottery ticket from the Stop & Shop Supermarket on Hylan Boulevard in Staten Island on the 11th of August, Nandlall Mangal, 42, left the ticket on the kitchen table and didn’t check it for a week or so because he was out of town. However, upon checking the ticket and realizing that he had won the $245.6 million jackpot, Mangal put the ticket in a safe and continued going to work while he sought legal counsel. A few weeks later, on the 27th of September, the New York Lottery announced that Mangal had won the jackpot prize of $245.6 million. Choosing to take the $100 million lump sum payment, Mangal assigned the winnings which amounted to $99,321,975 after withholdings to the “The Sea & Sand Trust”.

“I’m going to invest some, pay off my bills, my debts. I’m pretty sure at some time, I’ll buy a new car. I always wanted to travel, so I’m pretty sure I’m going to travel. I would like to go to Hawaii.” Mangal told the New York Daily News .
