MANHATTAN - Brooklyn is now home to three new millionaires, courtesy of New York Lottery.

Margaret Douglas is now a member of the millionaire's club after winning the $10,000-a-week scratch-off game last month, which totals about $10 million. Douglas opted for the lump sum and walked away with $5 million in her bank account.

The Brooklyn resident bought her winning ticket while on break from her job at Pathmark in Flatlands. Customers there were excited for her big win, but wanted to make sure she doesn't blow the windfall.

Otto Royal, of Bed-Stuy, is planning to use his newfound wealth to help his loved ones. He says he will be helping his grandchildren and daughter.
