Even though New York State has faced its share of challenges over the past two years, individuals considering leaving the Empire State for greener pastures may want to think twice after a recent run of lotto windfalls from nearby retailers with winners feeling grateful.
Two recent large Powerball winners were purchased at the Smokes 4 Less location on North Plank Road in Newburgh.
A second prize ticket for the November 5 drawing was bought there and is worth just over $1 million.
The single big winner in New York for the November 1 drawing was accepted there and is worth between $1 and $2 million.
According to W101.5 WPDH (https://bit.ly/3zIQEjJ), a Smokes 4 Less store in Fishkill made news last summer due to a year-long streak of significant victories.
Among those winners were a Cash4Life player who will get $1,000 per day for the rest of their lives, a Pick 10 winner who will get $500,000, and a Powerball winner who will get $1 million.
The Bolla market in West Hempstead, on Hempstead Avenue, seems to be another reasonably good location in New York.
According to the Malverne-Lynbrook Patch, two winning Mega Millions tickets for the November 1st drawing were purchased at the shop (https://bit.ly/3DN197c).
The second prize numbers on both of the winning tickets earned their owners $1 million.
The five boroughs have also been affected by the surge of lucky tickets.
A second Cash4Life prize-winning ticket was purchased at Remedies Pharmacy in Williamsburg.
The winner, who has not been announced yet, is anticipated to get $1,000 every week for life.
