If you play the Mega Millions lottery, it’s time to pull out that lucky rabbit’s foot and wish upon a shooting star because the third largest jackpot ever since New York joined the game will be drawn on Tuesday.
Heading into Friday night’s drawing, the Mega Millions jackpot is up to $242 million — and it’s generating a ticket-buying frenzy at area lottery outlets.
Rikers Island corrections worker Garina Fearon said she plans on using the money to help family members in Jamaica and send her two daughters to private school.
Garina Fearon has overcome being homeless, bankrupt and a robbery victim. Now she’s gone from counting inmates to counting millions after winning last Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot.
