Tarig Osman, a resident of Deer Park, New York, is living the dream of many winning $1,000,000 with a scratch-off from the New York Lottery. Fortune smiled at Osman in the game ‘Millionaire Maker’.
Osman chose to receive his prize in a lump sum, leaving him with a total of $651,000 after paying the required taxes.
This stroke of luck came because of a ticket purchased at the Jai Maharaj store, located at 474 Grand Blvd. in Deer Park.
There are still 11 prizes left available on ‘Millionaire Maker’ tickets.
The New York Lottery is not only a source of entertainment and dreams come true for winners, but also an important pillar for education.
And, during the fiscal year 2022-2023, scratch-off games generated total sales of $4,406,338,198.
Suffolk County school districts have greatly benefited, receiving $359,484,595 in Lottery Education Aid funds over the same period.
