Third New York Lottery Instant Game Millionaire For the Year

Marilyn Garcia-John, 50, won $1 million from a Black Pearls instant game and became the third New York Lottery millionaire for the year. She bought her ticket over the summer from the Port Chester Mini Mart on Westchester Avenue. She had forgotten about it, even as it was in her purse, until her son asked her to play it.

Originally from the Dominican Republic, Garcia-John has three sons and works as a bank teller. The prize is paid in annual installments over a period of 20 years. Garcia-John will be receiving a yearly check of $33,015 after taxes, up to 2030.
