Three Lucky Winners In Wednesday's $448-Million Powerball Jackpot Drawing

There were three lucky ticket-holders in Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot, worth a whopping $448-million!

The winning numbers for the $448-million jackpot were 5, 25, 30, 58, and 59 with a Powerball of 32. Two winning tickets were sold in New Jersey and one in Minnesota.

At the time of the telecast Wednesday night, Powerball officials announced that the jackpot previously pegged at $425-million had grown to an estimated $448 million.

What would you do with all of that money if you won?

News10NBC asked some lottery hopefuls that question.

"I'd pay off my youngest son's school loan, buy him a car, pay off my oldest son's house and buy him a car," said one ticket buyer.

"I don't know. I play just in case," said another lottery hopeful.


"Maybe little bit of charity, a little bit of friends and family, maybe a nice Lamborghini, you know," said another lottery hopeful.

News10NBC stopped by the East Avenue Wegmans Wednesday night and asked people buying Powerball tickets if they had a strategy when playing their numbers.

"I dreamt of my mom for the last three nights, so I played her birthday," said one hopeful player.

Lottery officials said if no one won Wednesday night's big jackpot, Saturday's drawing would have been in record-breaking territory. The record jackpot is $590-million won by a Florida woman back in May.
