A Mega Millions lottery ticket worth $326 million was sold at a Valero gas station in Middletown, NY this week.

New York Lottery caller Yolanda Vega says after her more than 20 years in the business, it’s always exciting to see a New Yorker win the grand prize.

Vega spoke with WAMC’s Lucas Willard.
