SOUNDVIEW, the Bronx — Someone lucky bought a winning Powerball ticket from a Bronx deli.
A second-prize ticket from the Wednesday drawing worth $2 million was sold at NY Famous Deli on East 172nd Street, according to the New York Lottery.
With no overall winner, the jackpot will rise to $205 million in Saturday night’s Powerball drawing.
In October, a Bronx deli sold a Mega Millions ticket worth $1 million. A Mega Millions ticket worth $432 million was recently sold in Midtown Manhattan. The big win was New York’s second jackpot-winning ticket so far this year, after a $96 million prize was won by an Oneida County couple in February.
The Powerball drawing is televised every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m.
