NEW YORK (AP) - Ignoring his friends has paid off big for a New York man.

He won $26 million in a Friday the 13th lottery draw.

New York state lottery officials said Monday the winner is from Wyandanch, on Long Island. The identity of the El Salvador native was not revealed.

Officials said the man didn’t heed the warnings of well-meaning friends who told him to stay away from the lottery on Friday the 13th.
