BRICK – One lucky man from Brick walked away with a $1 million winning lottery ticket from the Princeton Avenue Deli & Dairy back in January.

Michael Mastroserio went to the deli to grab a few tickets for the January 6 drawing of the $559.7 Powerball jackpot. After finding out that the grand prize had already been won in New Hampshire, Mastroserio checked his tickets anyway to see if he got lucky.

He got much more than he bargained for when the attendant informed him that he won the second best prize: $1 million.

Mastroserio was one of only two winners for the $1 million prize.

The following day, he filed his claim for his prize, which he plans to use to send his kids to college and bank the rest for saving.
