This isn’t the first time Pronto Pizza has sold a winning lottery ticket, according to the outlet. A $1 million and $3 million lottery ticket have been purchased there before.
Although the Mega Millions ticket is valued at $432 million, the winner would receive $192.9 million after federal, state and local taxes are accounted for, according to CNBC.
The winner has one year to claim the jackpot, and they have the option to receive it as a lump sum or as an annual payout.
