Dariusz Bugnacki, of Brooklyn, New York, claimed a $1,000,000 second prize from the September 2 Mega Millions drawing on September 4. The 50-year-old retired carpenter originally from Poland, said he enjoys playing different Lottery draw games every day, he said.
Bugnacki said he went to his “lucky” convenience store. in Brooklyn to buy a Quick Pick ticket for that evening’s Mega Millions drawing. The next morning, he checked his numbers on the Lottery’s website.
I started matching up the numbers and I felt light headed. I had to leave my computer and then come back to it. I had a hard time perceiving that it was real, he explained.
It didn’t take long to find out the good news…he had won $1 million.
