ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A third prize-winning Powerball ticket worth $50,000 was purchased in Fairport for Monday night’s drawing.
According to the New York Lottery, the ticket was purchased at the Wegmans store on Pittsford-Palmyra Road.
This is the third time this month that a third-prize winning ticket was bought in the Greater Rochester Area. The other two tickets were purchased at Wegmans stores on Calkins Road and Eastern Boulevard in Canandaigua. Both were worth $50,000.
Once again, after the drawing, there were no winners who claimed the then-$900 million Powerball jackpot. That prize has jumped to an estimated $1 billion. It could be the third-highest jackpot in US history.
