·1 min read

Someone is waking up $432 million richer Wednesday after the ticket they purchased at a New York pizzeria matched all six numbers in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing, according to lottery officials.

The ticket was bought at Pronto Pizza on 48th Street and 6th Avenue, steps from Rockefeller Center in Manhattan. The winning numbers were 36, 41, 45, 51, 56, with the Mega Ball number of 13.

The odds of winning were 1 in 302 million, according to the New York Lottery's website.

The winner will get to choose to cash out with the lump sum or receive payments spread over decades. The lump sum payout will total $315 million.

New York does not allow for winners of lottery prizes of this size to remain individually anonymous, but in 2019, a group of 23 people from Long Island anonymously collected funds from their $437 million ticket using an LLC.

A ticket sold in Connecticut also won $1 million in Tuesday night's drawing.

The last time someone won the Mega Millions was in June, in Crestwood, Illinois, according to the Mega Millions website.

New York has had other winners this year. A couple upstate won $96 million in February.

But the largest win this year came in January when a winning ticket worth more than $1 billion was sold in Michigan.

The Mega Millions jackpot will reset to $20 million, and the next drawing is Friday.
