The winning ticket for Saturday night’s Powerball jackpot was sold in Staten Island, the New York Lottery announced.

The lucky winner of a $245 million jackpot purchased the ticket at a Stop & Shop store located at 2754 Hylan Boulevard. The winning numbers were 5-43-56-62-68, and the Powerball number was 24.

Two players – one in Georgia and one in Florida – matched all five numbers but not the Powerball number. The Georgia player won $1 million, and the Florida player won $2 million, as he or she had selected the Powerplay option, in which a player pays $3 for a ticket instead of $2 and doubles any winnings of secondary prizes.
