Winning Powerball Ticket Worth $298M Sold in Brooklyn

December 28, 2018

NEW YORK (AP) — Officials say a winning ticket for a $298 million Powerball jackpot was sold at a New York City gas station.

New York Lottery spokesman Brad Maione (may-OH’-nee) says it’s the only known ticket to have all the winning numbers : 5-25-38-52-67 and Powerball number 24.

He says it was an automatically-generated Quick Pick ticket sold at Arnold Service Station in Brooklyn. The station had no immediate comment Thursday.

No winner has yet come forward. He, she or they can receive $298.3 million in installments over 30 years or a one-time, lump-sum payment of $180.2 million.

Other tickets bought in New York also hit it big this year.

A Staten Island carpenter won a $245.6 million Powerball prize in August, and a retired postal worker from Manhattan won $343.8 million in October.
