Million Dollar Powerball Ticket Sold in Saratoga County

"I just may be that victor", he thought, so he rushed home to check his ticket using the OLG lottery app, where his good fortune was confirmed.

This is beyond fantastic and I made sure to read the headline multiple times because this is not the kind of thing you want to mess up.

"I'm trying to compose myself".


Draw 1270 was drawn on Thursday night to result in only one division one victor, and 26 division two wins of $35,977.90. I feel like this has to be some kind of joke. A player who buys a $2 ticket has about a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to match five numbers and win at least $1 million, while there's about a 1 in 913,129 shot of winning the third prize of at least $50,000.

She says she's already got big plans for the money, and was surrounded by family when she received the news. There's no way he's going to believe me.

"We will be able to pay off all our debts, help our parents out and all our siblings".


"Hopefully, when we can travel again, we will be able to take our whole family somewhere overseas. I'm shaking like a leaf".

More than 1.5 million people had entered the Thursday night jackpot and the result means it's the ninth Division One jackpot won this year. Another 128 entries won the Division Three prize of $4466. As excitement continues to grow during this jackpot run, we want to remind our players to play responsibly.

Players can phone Lotto NZ on 0800 695 6886 if they wanted to find out the best way to claim a prize. I always play the same numbers. "I'm a country girl through and through!" she laughed.
