In Wednesday’s $1.58 billion record-breaking Powerball jackpot, Lottery players in Rockland, Westchester and Orange counties won millions of dollars with five winning tickets ranging from $50,000 to $1 million.
The largest winning ticket was a $1 million Powerball second prize sold at Stony Point Mini Mart at 104 West Main Street in Stony Point, Rockland County. Other Rockland winning tickets worth $50,000 were sold at:
Nanuet Mini Mart, 222 South Middletown Road, Nanuet
“While no one hit the jackpot prize, New Yorkers are vastly richer thanks to Wednesday’s historic Powerball drawing,” said Gardner Gurney, Director of the Division of the Lottery. “From Montauk Point to Niagara Falls and from Plattsburgh to Jamestown, two million prizes totaling over $18.8 million dollars were won in New York.”
The Lottery encourages everyone who buys a New York Lottery draw game ticket to check their tickets again, as they could be holding a winner. Tickets expire one year after the game’s drawing.
The winners may claim the tickets at Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway at 810 Yonkers Avenue in Yonkers, NY 10704 or at any of the Lottery’s Customer Service Centers statewide, including the Lottery’s Fishkill office at 18 Westage Business Center, Hudson Valley Towne Center, Suite 6, Fishkill, NY 12524.
