Harold Diamond was New York’s massive Mega Millions lotto winner on the 4th of November 2014. Harold lives in Sullivan County, and he is 80 years old. Harold is now retired, but he used to be the principal of a school. Soft-spoken and humble, the winner quietly accepted his cheque at the New York lottery’s headquarters. 

The $326 million Mega Millions was quiet, but he had some details to share with the press about his win. “My wife and I were driving to Middletown for dinner after voting on Election Day but the weather made us rethink our plans. My wife insisted that we stop over to eat and wait until the weather cleared, and I reluctantly agreed,” explained the 39-year veteran of the Monticello School District. 

While eating their food at Subway, he noticed a flashing sign for the Mega Millions lottery jackpot inside the Valero. He decided to spend $10 to get 10 sets of quick pick tickets for that evening’s Mega Millions draw. 

After he bought the ticket he put it in his wallet and then completely forgot about it. “I went to play golf the next day and the guys in the clubhouse were talking about the jackpot-winning ticket someone bought at a Valero on Route 302 and I thought, wait a minute – I bought a ticket there last night!” said Harold. 

In that moment he raced home as fast as he could to catch the winning numbers on the evening news. That’s when he saw the same six numbers that were on one of the quick pick tickets he bought. In that instant he realised he was the winner of the largest jackpot ever claimed in New York back then in 2014. “I was in a dither; a real daze,” he said. 

The winning numbers for the Mega Millions draw were:

9-15-24-39-41 and the Mega Ball 01. 

Harold said that he owes his good fortune to his wife Carol because she was the one who had the idea of stopping over to eat and wait for the passing of the storm. “I have to thank her with both barrels because if it weren’t for her instance, we would not be here today,” he said. 

Harold mentioned that he had been consulting with financial advisors for what he plans to do next with the money. “I simply can’t envision that kind of money,” he chuckled.
