Powerball Hits Astronomical $1.5B! Upstate NY Stays Hot with $1M Winner!
Nobody won the Powerball jackpot again last night! The grand prize is expected to skyrocket over $1.5 billion dollars when the numbers are drawn again on Saturday night!
This is getting a little crazy, but I like it.
Last night's winning Powerball numbers from the New York Lottery were 2, 11, 22, 35, and 60 and the Powerball was 23.
According to the NY Lottery, there were no grand prize winners in Wednesday night's drawing, but there were three $2M dollar winners and sixteen $1M dollar winners.
None of the $2M dollar winners were from New York, but one of the $1M dollar winners was - and the ticket according to the NY Lottery was sold from an Upstate New York chain tobacco store called Smokes 4 Less, located at 59 North Plank Road, Newburgh, NY.
According to the Smokes 4 Less website, there are a total of 11 locations throughout the Hudson Valley and when it comes to lottery winners, Smokes 4 Less seems to have some sort of NY Lottery cheat code.
Is Smokes 4 Less Really a Lucky Lotto Spot?
Back in April, Smokes 4 Less in Fishkill had a $1M Mega Millions winner making it the 3rd time in 2022 that location paid out a giant lotto jackpot. Last night's Powerball winner was from the same chain, but a different location.
Upstate NY stays Powerball Hot!
When is the next Powerball drawing, and how many billions of dollars will be reigning out of the sky?
Saturday night's drawing is insanely close to being the world's largest jackpot.
NY Lottery officials estimate the total will be at $1.5 billion dollars - just a smidge away from the record-setting $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot back in January 2016.
