Powerball on the rise ahead of Saturday’s drawing

The Powerball and the Mega Millions jackpots continue to grow and New Yorkers are hoping to win big.
The Powerball now sits at around $248 million after no winning ticket was drawn on Wednesday. A lucky player got a second-prize ticket for $1 million back on Jan. 26.
Business owners tell News 12 that since that second-place prize ticket was won, more people have been stopping in to get their tickets.
The next Powerball drawing is set for Saturday.
