WNY filled with Powerball winners

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Across New York State, there were nearly 100 Powerball winners despite the fact that no New Yorkers took home a slice of the jackpot $1.5 billion prize.

Five New Yorkers took away $1 million tickets, but 79 winners scored tickets worth $50,000 — with two more scoring $100,000 tickets by utilizing the power play option.

In western New York, there were five $50,000 ticket winners, between Erie, Niagara and Genesee Counties. The locations are as follows:

  • Prime Stop at 755 East Delevan Avenue in Buffalo
  • Noco Express Shop at 1555 North French Road in Getzville
  • Tops Markets at 3870 Harlem Road in Cheektowaga
  • 7-Eleven at 505 East Main Street in Batavia
  • 7-Eleven at 2620 Niagara Street in Niagara Falls.

Lucky winners of the $1.5 billion jackpot are split between three states — with one winner residing in California, Florida and Tennessee.
