Greenwich is home to more than one winner from the March 27 Mega Millions game that eclipsed a jackpot of half-a-billion dollars.
The New York Lottery announced Monday that Patrick Macaluso won $10,000 in the drawing. The Greenwich resident purchased his winning ticket at Pronto Pizza, 62 W. 48th St. in New York, according to the lottery.
To cash in on the $10,000 prize, Macaluso had to hit four numbers plus the Mega Ball. The odds of winning $10,000 are 1 in 689,065, according to the lottery.
Macaluso joins Anthony Johnson -- who won the game's second highest prize of $250,000 by matching five numbers drawn -- as Greenwich residents who cashed in on the craze that swept the nation preceding the March 27 drawing.
Johnson purchased his ticket from Putnam Shell at 401 W. Putnam Ave. and hit five numbers but missed the Mega Ball. The odds of winning $250,000 are 1 in 3,904,701, according to the lottery.
Three grand-prize winning tickets were solid in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland, giving their owners a share of the largest lottery jackpot in history.
The $656 million jackpot was up from a previously reported $640 million after sales from the 44 state lotteries were totaled.
