NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Grab on to your tickets, New York!
The winning numbers for the whopping $435 million Powerball lottery drawing are: 20, 26, 32, 38 and 58 and the Powerball is 3.
The top prize in Saturday’s drawing is tied for the nation’s 10th largest lottery prize.
So what are the odds of winning? One in 292.2 million.
“When it comes to a jackpot like this, you’ve got to take advantage,” Edwin Leon, of the Bronx, told CBS2’s Erin Logan.
That’s why he bought a few tickets as he started off his Saturday. He said it’s not so much for the potential fortune, but the fun.
People lined up at a Sunnyside, Queens store, smiling at each other and spreading the good luck vibe.
“You’ve got to go for it day by day. That’s what my dad tells me,” Leon said.
Many shared how they would spend the money.
“Definitely help my parents out — that’s the first thing I would do. Pay off my college tuition, help out wherever I can and start living a different life probably.”
“Maybe help a few family members, but got back to Florida,” Wayne Massaro said.
“I’m going back to my country and my family in the Philippines,” another woman added.
For New Yorkers, the $435 million jackpot is worth just shy of $288 million after taxes, spread out over 30 years. If you go for the cash payout instead, you’ll net almost $181 million after taxes.
No one has won the jackpot since April 1st, when a player in Arizona won a comparatively meager $60 million.
A ticket sold at Amboy Food Liquor & News in South Amboy won $150,000, while one sold at the Quick Chek on Jackson Avenue in Pompton Plains won $50,000.
