The lucky lottery player chose his numbers using the " Quick Pick " option of the lottery machine. This option lets the lottery machine choose random numbers for a player.

Daniel decided to spend $10 to buy his winning lottery ticket during a shopping trip. He said: "I went to the King Kullen store I normally go to when we’re on Long Island visiting family and friends... I picked up food for dinner and saw how big the jackpot was so I decided to buy a ticket."

Christine, Daniel's wife, told him on the morning of the 28th, that they had heard the news that the winning lottery ticket was bought at the King Kullen store. Christine said: "To humor him, I went upstairs and woke Dan up and said jokingly that we think he won. Go check your numbers".

Daniel checked his lottery ticket. "The numbers just line up... It didn't seem real." he said. The couple decided to keep their jackpot win a secret. Christene said that it was very difficult for her to keep the secret from family and friends, especially during the holidays.

Christine works in the mortgage industry, and Daniel is employed as a financial analyst in California. They waited for almost three weeks before Daniel returned to New York to claim his lottery prize. He stored his lottery ticket in a safety deposit box.

Daniel does not want to quit his job at the moment: "I think it is important to keep things normal right now". "This has been such a whirlwind, I really haven’t had time to think about my plans for the money", said Daniel during a press conference held on Friday 13 January 2012.
