When her hairstylist was running late last month, an 82-year-old Long Island woman walked next door to a convenience store and bought a scratch-off ticket. Turns out, Marilyn Looney was a big winner.
"He read it and he came jumping over and said, 'My God, lady, you're a millionaire. You've just won $7 million,'" Looney told WCBS.
Looney chose to split her winnings with her daughter, Carol Prevete, who told the New York Lottery, "We've been pooling our money to buy lottery tickets for years now and we always split whatever prize we win."
