Everyone hopes to win the Powerball jackpot, but taking home the third-place prize of $50,000 is nothing to scoff at. 

KP Deli Corp. at 255 Hylan Blvd. in Rosebank recently sold such a desirable ticket for the Saturday, Jan. 14, drawing, New York Lottery officials announced. 

Another third-prize ticket was also sold at Smokes 4 Less in Newburgh, N.Y., giving that store three winners in the span of a week.

In order to win the ultimate jackpot you must match all five numbers and the Powerball. The odds of such are incredibly slim, with chances being 1 in 292,201,338.

However, to win the third-place prize, one must match four numbers and the Powerball.

In the last 23 years of ownership, KP Deli owner Sajjab Pasha, has seen his fair share of winning tickets.

It’s very often like $10,000, $20,000, something like that going on. Take Five and the other games, you know,” Pasha said.

However, the large prize of $50,000 is something that the store has not seen the likes of before.

Even now, the store awaits to hear more information about the winning ticket from lottery officials.

We haven’t got any information yet. Usually they inform us, they send us in the mail that the store has a winner,” Pasha noted.
