Two Queens stores—one in Jackson Heights and the other in Elmhurst—have sold New York lottery tickets that have reaped buyers millions.
A 7-Eleven store located at 79-01 Northern Blvd sold a $1 million Powerball ticket that an unnamed buyer won on Nov. 8.
Meanwhile, Jean Moreno of Elmhurst won the $3 million top prize on the New York Lottery’s Fortune scratch-off game. The ticket was purchased at M & B Candy Grocery Store located at 89-45 Elmhurst Ave in Elmhurst.
Moreno opted to receive his prize as a one-time lump sum payment totaling $1,671,415 after required withholdings. He received the money earlier this month.
