NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- One ticket sold in New York City for Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing matched all five numbers and the Mega Ball to win the $432 million jackpot.

The winning ticket was sold at Pronto Pizza on West 48th Street in Midtown, Manhattan, according to the New York Lottery website.

"I'm happy for this guy and wish it could be me," restaurant owner David Khiralla said. "Happy for him, maybe he needs it, and I hope we have other winners soon, too."

David Khiralla talks about selling the winning Mega Millions lottery ticket at his business, Pronto Pizza in Midtown.

This isn't the first time Pronto Pizza sold a ticket worth millions. Khiralla said a man won $3 million a few years ago, and in 2009, they sold a winning $1 million scratch-off ticket.

"It's a lucky place," he said. "There's no secret at all. It's luck. It's luck. If you're lucky, you got it. If you're unlucky, you'll get it next time. Nothing in the pizza, no secret in the pizza."

The winning numbers are 36-41-45-51-56 and the Mega Ball 13. The Megaplier was 3x.

The winner has the choice of opting for the lump-sum payment of $315 million.

A ticket sold in Connecticut matched five of the numbers to win the $1 million second prize, officials said.

Meantime, the Powerball jackpot has surged as well. Tonight's drawing will have a top prize of $490 million, with a cash option of $355.1 million.

You can see the Powerball drawings at on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday nights at 10:59 p.m.

Mega Millions is also streamed at on Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00 p.m.

The last time the Mega Millions jackpot was won was in Illinois on June 8.

The jackpot for the next drawing on Friday resets to $20 million, with the cash option at $14.5 million.

The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350, according to the game's website.
