Powerball jackpot sits at estimated $700M after no big winner Wednesday night; $2M ticket sold in NY

NEW YORK (WABC) – We may sound like a broken record, but there’s still no winner in that big Powerball jackpot.

Don’t fret if you thought Wednesday night’s drawing was going to make you a millionaire. The jackpot has climbed to an estimated $700 million ahead of Saturday night’s drawing.

No ticket matched all six numbers in the last drawing for a little under $650 million, but a ticket sold in New York won $2 million after matching five of the numbers and selecting Power Play.

Here are the winning numbers from Wednesday’s drawing: 58, 59, 43, 31, 66 with a Powerball of 9.

The odds of winning happen to be about one in 292.2 million, but the prize money can be all yours if you can match the five numbers drawn and, of course, the Powerball.

In the New York LOTTO drawing on Wednesday night, someone with a ticket bought in Manhattan became $18.4 million richer.

That prize-winning ticket was sold at the Soler Brothers Deli & Grocery on First Avenue in Manhattan.

The winning numbers for the February 1 New York LOTTO drawing are 2 – 4 – 6 – 16 – 23 – 32 and Bonus Number 39.

The climbing jackpot total for Powerball comes on the heels of a lucky player in Maine who recently won the $1.35 billion Mega Millions jackpot. That was the second-largest jackpot in the history of the game.
