MANHATTAN WOMAN WINS $1,000,000 POWERBALL PRIZE
August 3, 2013
Christine Monterosso of Manhattan won a $1,000,000 Powerball second prize from the March 16 drawing. Monterosso waited until June 28 to claim her prize at the New York City Customer Service Center because she wanted to seek legal and financial advice before claiming.

Monterosso bought a Powerball ticket at London Grocery on 10th Avenue in Manhattan because the jackpot was high. She explained that she knew she did not match all five numbers plus the Powerball to win the jackpot and waited five days before she finally went to the store where she purchased her ticket to check if she had won a smaller prize.

Monterosso saw a poster on the door of the store that said they had a $1,000,000 winner, but never thought it was her. The clerk in the store scanned her ticket and told her it was a big winner. Monterosso immediately left the store and brought the ticket home where she signed it and hid it in a “very secure and secret place.” She plans to use part of her $623,040 net check to go on vacation and then maybe invest the rest of her winnings.
