While this week’s $755 million Powerball jackpot ticket was purshased in Washington state, the same drawing showered some million-dollar love on Long Island.
New York Lottery reports that two second-prize tickets, each worth $1 million, were sold in Nassau County.
One was sold at the Barefoot Peddler pub and restaurant at 37 Glen Cove Road in Greenvale. The other was purchased at Farmingdale Petroleum Inc., located at 400 S. Oyster Bay Road in Hicksville.
Powerball players win $1 million by matching all five white numbers. Three of the five second-prize tickets in Monday’s drawing were purchased in New York State; the third was bought in Manhattan.
Additionally, there were seven third-prize, $50,000 winners across New York state. Matching four white numbers plus the Powerball is good enough for a third-prize win.
One lucky ticket sold in Washington state won the $755 million Powerball jackpot, one of the 10 largest in U.S. lottery history, on Monday night.
The winning numbers in Powerball drawing were 05-11-22-23-69; the Powerball was 07. One ticket matched each of the numbers. The holder of the winning ticket is eligible for a lump sum cash payout of $407.2 million.
