Of the several winners reported across the country in the latest Powerball drawing, two fell in New York and one in neighboring New Jersey.
Specifically, two $ 1 million tickets were sold in New York City and one in New Jersey. In NYC one was purchased at the “Stop & Shop” store in Ridgewood (Queens) and the other at “Patchen Gourmet Grill” in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Another $ 1 million winning ticket was sold in New Jersey, but the exact location was not known until yesterday, according to Pix11. None of the lucky ones from the tri-state area have been identified.
Two lucky winners will split the top prize valued at $ 632.6 million dollars after the drawing on Wednesday night. Tickets that hit that jackpot were sold in California y Wisconsin with the six numbers drawn: 06, 14, 25, 33, 46, and a Powerball of 17. Each of them will take home about $ 225 million in cash, before taxes.
