VALATIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – At least one winning ticket was sold for Saturday’s Powerball. That winning ticket was bought in Columbia County at a Stewart’s.
The ticket is worth $1 million and while the winner is a still a mystery, people all over the Capital Region are hoping the luck stays in the area.
Bill Greene says he got a text from Stewart’s corporate headquarters that his store sold a lottery ticket that is now worth $1 million. Now, the town of Valatie is abuzz with speculation about who could be holding on to that winning ticket.
“I heard that it may be this person, or it might be a group of people that put into a pool,” Greene tells News 10.
New York Lottery Officials say the winning quick pick ticket has yet to be claimed. People all over the Capital Region are hoping that lightning strikes twice in the same place.
“Oh, highly encouraged, that’s what my hope is,” player Herman Johnson says. “And I hope that the trickle-down economics come on home.”
Some people are even altering their strategy to try and summon a bit of the luck from over in Columbia County.
“I very rarely pick quick-picks, I usually pick my own. But today, all quick-picks,” Greene says.
That winning ticket is still lingering, but whoever has it surely has given hope to all the Powerball players of the Capital Region.
