Two New York Powerball winners claim their $1 million prizes

Two fortunate New York residents recently claimed substantial prizes in the Powerball lottery, each walking away with a million dollars in winnings. 

Cirilo Rodriguez, hailing from the Bronx, secured his $1 million prize by accurately matching the first five white balls in the August 5 drawing. 

The winning numbers for that night were 18, 42, 44, 62, and 65, with a Powerball number of 23. 

After accounting for necessary deductions, Rodriguez received a lump sum of $612,240 as his prize.

Simultaneously, Felecia Selmensberger of Lancaster claimed her $1 million prize.

She correctly guessed the first five Powerball numbers on September 2, which were 25, 38, 42, 66, and 67, narrowly missing the Powerball number, which was 19. 

After withholdings, Selmensberger received a lump sum payment of $651,000. Her winning ticket was purchased at Obsidio AAA, located at 1390 Delaware Ave. in Buffalo. 

These impressive wins showcase the life-changing potential of the Powerball lottery.
