Hoboken Mini Mart in New Jersey has just sold the winning Win For Life scratch card. The woman who won claimed her prize from the New Jersey Lottery on April 4. She chose to receive $850,000 rather over an option that would have paid her $1,000 per week.
Hitesh Raval, the owner of the Hoboken Mini Mart which sold the ticket, says that this is the first time a customer won a prize this big from his store. Now he is blessed twice over: more people are buying lottery tickets from his store, and he received $21,250 for selling the winning ticket.
