PowerballPowerball: New York man claims $245.6 million Powerball jackpotRating:

Includes video report

JAMAICA, Queens — A Staten Island, New York, man came forward Thursday to officially claim a $245.6 million Powerball jackpot.

Nandlall Mangal, 42, was the sole winner of the August 11 drawing.

Mangal said he purchases his tickets when the jackpots reach $100 million.

"I was grocery shopping and knew the Powerball jackpot was big," he said. "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," he said. "I checked the website when I got back and was surprised that I won the jackpot."

Staten Island's newest 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 taxes.

"Shocking," he said. "Right now, I just plan to relax and see where it goes from there."

Mangal did say he plans to use a portion of his winnings to travel.

"I've always wanted to go to Hawaii," he said.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Stop & Shop on Hylan Boulevard in Staten Island. He claimed his prize at Resorts World Casino in Queens.

Mangal is the 91st New York Lottery player to claim a prize totaling $1 million or more this year.

    I would take the two girls next to him.  Heck, he could be the next Dan Bilzerian.   Except no drugs or anything.  I like his interview.

    I love pecans and making sales with commissions.   

    My amazon store is just like the lottery.

          He left the ticket on his kitchen table for a week while he was out of town! Shocked He was lucky he wasn't broken into during that time.  Easy grab for a thief.  I keep my tickets safe.  Jeez, $100million, that's a real nice win.  That should last him his whole life time.  It would me.

              Congratulations Nandlall Mangal!!  I believe that his lawyer standing behind him is Jason Kurland. The famous lottery lawyer. Money well spent on legal advice and general lottery info.

               I checked my records and found that the Cash Lump Sum that a Californian would have won was $93,000,000.00  California does not charge State taxes on lottery winnings. New York has the highest taxes on lottery winnings. According to USAMEGA N.Y. State = 8.82%  City = 3.876% Yonkers = 3.23% 

               Yes, if you have the travel bug and the means to do it than why not.

              Party

                  Most everyone who wins the jackpot, has a fantastic story to tell, as to how they " discovered " that they had won the jackpot.Some stories are better than others.. for instance!

                  So,you purchase your tickets " because the jackpot is Big " & then leave them on the table for a week. The other doozy that comes to mind is: Having the winning ticket used in a Christmas tree decoration...until it was check. I " wish" LP compiled a list of " Strange tales involving winning lottery tickets"- what a read, that would be...
