SCHENECTADY -- Mike Barth was waiting on line to buy a Mega Millions ticket at Coulson's last week, when another man cut in front of him and bought a ticket.
"Someone reached in front of me," said Barth, of Bethlehem. "Actually cut in front of me to buy a ticket. I thought about saying something but let it slide."
His silence was worth $319 million.
Barth bought the next ticket, the nation's only jackpot winner for Friday's drawing.
On Thursday, Barth and six co-workers met the public for the first time.
The other winners are John Hilton, 57, of North Greenbush; Gabrielle Mahar, 29, of Colonie; John Kutey, 54, of Green Island; Tracy Sussman, 41, of Colonie; Kristin Baldwin, 42, of Clifton Park; and Leon Peck, 62, of Johnstown.
