ALBANY – No one picked all six numbers in Saturday’s $947.9 million Powerball lottery, which will drive the Wednesday, January 13 jackpot to a world record $1.3 billion, or $806 million in a lump sum.
There were 25, $1 million second-prize winners with three tickets sold in New York. One was purchased at the Stewart’s Shop on Route 9 in Valatie. The others were purchased in Queens and Suffolk County.
“History continues to be made with this massive jackpot,” said Gardner Gurney, director of the Division of the Lottery. “Three lucky New Yorkers are $1 million richer as the excitement spreads across the county.”
Wednesday’s drawing will be the biggest Powerball jackpot ever and the largest jackpot prize of any lottery game in world history.
