It has happened one more time here in New York.

The New York State Lottery announced that another 3rd place ticket for the Powerball was sold in New York State for last night's drawing.

The 3rd place ticket matched 4 out of 5 numbers and the Powerball number and won $50,000.

This is the third time this week that a ticket sold in New York has won the $50,000 3rd place prize from the Powerball drawing. Two other 3rd place tickets were announced from Monday's drawing.

Last Wednesday's Powerball drawing also had a 3rd place winner and the week before that there was another 3rd place winning ticket sold in New York State.

Here are last night's winning Powerball numbers. 9,11,17,19,55 with the Powerball number of 1.

No one claimed the grand prize jackpot so that means the grand prize is now up to $264 million dollars. The next Powerball drawing is coming up on Saturday, August 19th. If you won that jackpot, it would be the 5th largest ever in New York State.
