Two New York residents claim $1 million prizes from Powerball

Two lucky New York residents recently made their way to the lottery headquarters to claim million-dollar Powerball prizes.

Both of these fortunate individuals correctly matched five white balls, securing the second prize in the Powerball jackpot.

Cirilo Rodriguez, a resident of the Bronx, celebrated a $1 million win after purchasing his ticket from AMG Retail at 295 E Sandford Blvd. 

In Mount Vernon. His winning numbers, drawn on August 5, were 18, 42, 44, 62, and 65, with a Powerball of 23. 

After necessary deductions, Rodriguez received a lump sum prize of $612,240, which he claimed on Thursday.

Simultaneously, Felecia Selmensberger from Lancaster visited the New York Lottery headquarters to claim her own $1 million prize. 

She correctly matched 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 required withholdings, Selmensberger received a one-time lump sum payment of $651,000. She purchased her winning ticket at Obsidio , located at 1390 Delaware Ave.

These wins showcase the life-changing potential of the Powerball lottery, bringing joy and financial security to these fortunate players.
