STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (PIX11) — A lucky customer at a Staten Island convenience store is $136 million richer, according to New York Lottery officials.

The winning Powerball ticket was sold for $2 at the 7-Eleven at 15 Page Ave. and is marked with the winning numbers 8, 14, 39, 46, 47 and Powerball No. 18.

Whoever purchased that now-pricey piece of paper was the only Powerball player to hit Saturday’s jackpot.

The next Powerball drawing will take place Wednesday with a jackpot of $40 million up for grabs, NY Lotto officials said.

If you’re the lucky Powerball winner, sign your ticket then contact a Lottery customer service center near you to redeem your prize. The winner has until March 14, 2016, to claim the jackpot.

The winner can receive a lump sum payment of $88.53 million or have their jackpot paid out over 30 payments in 29 years. The 7-Eleven that sold the winning ticket will receive a $10,000 bonus.

It’s been a particularly lucky few months for New Yorkers. In January, a Sullivan County man was the sole winner of a $326 million Mega Millions jackpot, and in February, another Sullivan County resident was the only Mega Millions player to hit a $126 million jackpot, Lotto officials said.
