13 $50,000 Winning Tickets Sold in New York for Saturday’s Powerball Drawing
Unfortunately no one in New York won the Powerball Jackpot last night, but there were some other big winners throughout the state.
The Powerball Jackpot reached a high of 478 million dollars before the big drawing on Saturday night. One winning ticket was sold in New Hampshire - It was bought at a Hannaford in Raymond.
No one in New York hit the second place prize, either - which is worth one million dollars (although 10 states did see at least one of those million dollar winners).
It may sound like all bad news for New York lottery players, but that's not the case. 13 winning lottery tickets worth $50,000 were sold around the state. To win that prize, players must match 4 out of the 5 numbers plus the Powerball. One New York lottery player added the "Power Play" to their ticket (and matched the 4 out of 5 and Powerball) to take home a prize of $100,000.
Altogether, New York saw 246,544 winners in the Powerball - with winning prizes ranging from $4 to $100,000
The winning numbers were:
11, 17, 21, 23, 32,
Make sure you check your tickets to see if you were one of the $50,000 winners!
