St. James man wins $5 million with scratch-off he bought in Deer Park


If there’s one person on Long Island who won’t be bothered by today’s blizzard, it’s Rory Fabian of St. James.

That’s because Fabian is sitting $3.2 million richer than he was two days ago — all because he got super lucky playing New York Lottery’s $5,000,000 Riches scratch-off game.

“I am out-of-my-mind happy,” Fabian said, claiming his lump sum payout of $3.25 million after required withholding yesterday.

Fabian’s winning ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven at 2160 Deer Park Ave. in Deer Park.

Lottery officials said two unclaimed top prizes remain available on the $5,000,000 Riches ticket.
