NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Run, don’t walk to your corner bodega! You still have a chance to start off the new year as a mega millionaire.
No one matched all six numbers in Friday night’s Mega Millions jackpot drawing, which means Tuesday’s drawing just rolled to at least $343 million.
As a result, the jackpots for both Mega Millions and Powerball are above $300 million for only the second time in history.
Saturday night’s $391 million winning Powerball numbers were: 28, 36, 41, 51, 58 and Powerball 24.
As CBS2’s Jessica Borg reported, tickets were flying at Food Mart on 10th Avenue near 57th Street. Gustavo Aguirre said he was feeling lucky and careful chose his number.
The mega million-dollar question: What would you do with all that money?
“Help for my family, maybe help for the organizations for the donations, and I go to travel, I buy a house,” Aguirre told Borg.
Buying up property was theme. Margaret Williams, of Flatbush, Brooklyn, played both Poweball and Mega Millions.
“Buy a home and go to my country – Guyana,” she said.
Store clerk Abdul Salah said his store is on a winning streak. Two months ago, he sold a $10,000 lottery ticket.
The sky-high jackpots meant good business Saturday.
“One guy he played for $360 – one guy,” said Salah.
Never mind that the odds of winning the Powerball are one in 292 million, a winning attitude is all you need.
