Staten Island, NY - Forty-two-year-old Nandlall Mangal, from Staten Island, has come forward to claim the $245.6 million sole jackpot-winning ticket from the August 11, 2018 Powerball drawing.

Mangal, said he purchases his Lottery tickets when the jackpots reach $100 million.  “I was grocery shopping and knew the Powerball jackpot was big,” he explained.  “I decided that was a good time to buy my tickets.”

Mangal purchased a $6 Quick Pick ticket for that night’s drawing and left it on his kitchen table.  “The ticket sat on my kitchen table for a week because I was out of town.  I checked the website when I got back and was surprised that I won the jackpot!”

Staten Island’s newest Lottery multi-millionaire claimed his prize in the form of a trust. On behalf of The Sea & Sand Trust, he has chosen to receive his Powerball prize as a one-time lump sum payment totaling $99,321,975 after required withholdings.
