Powerball lottery jackpot hits $1.9 billion
As the Powerball lottery jackpot continues to grow, people around the country and New York City have been racing to their local vendors with hopes of becoming an overnight billionaire.
The jackpot hasn’t swollen to this size since 2016, when three players split a nearly $1.6 billion prize.
Bronx residents were spotted passing through Two Brothers Gourmet Deli in Soundview, where it seemed each and every customer was walking out with a Powerball ticket.
News 12’s Faith Graham spoke with locals about what they would do if they were to win the life-changing jackpot money.
The next drawing is Monday at 10:59 p.m.
