50 Large! Powerball Winning Ticket sold at Schenectady Stewart’s
It wasn't the grand prize, but nobody (including the winner) is scoffing at the payout after a Powerball winning ticket was sold at a local Stewart's Shops over the weekend.
Powerball jackpots start in the hundreds of millions, but there's plenty of life-changing money to be had even if you come relatively close.
Another Capital Region winner scored some life-changing money thanks to the NY Lottery.
That was the case on Saturday night when we learned that there was a 50k winner from a ticket sold at the Stewart's on Guilderland Avenue in Rotterdam.
The winning numbers from the $112M Saturday drawing were 15, 17, 18, 47, and 57, and the Powerball was 19, and there was no grand prize or even a second-place winner in Saturday night's drawing according to the NY Lottery.
The biggest payout from Saturday night's Powerball drawing came from a ticket sold in the Capital Region. How much did they win?
The winning ticket worth $50,000 was from an unidentified player who had 4 correct numbers + the Powerplay which paid out the 50K.
The winning numbers for this game are drawn from a field of one to 69.
Then, the Powerball number is drawn from a completely separate field of one to 26, adding even more statistical improbability to an already Herculean fete.
Back in January, there was a million dollar second place winner from a Mega Millions jackpot also sold at a Stewart's, this one was in Troy.
The Powerball drawing is televised every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 11 p.m.
