A single ticket sold in New York won the Powerball® jackpot in the August 11 drawing.
The ticket matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to win the jackpot worth an estimated $245.6 million; $147.8 million cash value.
According to the New York Lottery, the jackpot-winning ticket was purchased at STOP & SHOP located at 2754 Hylan Blvd. in Staten Island, NY.
The winning numbers in the August 11 drawing were: 05 – 43 – 56 – 62 – 68, Powerball 24, Power Play 2X.
This was the sixth time the Powerball jackpot has been won this year. Previous jackpot wins in 2018 include:

Two other tickets, sold in Georgia and Florida, matched all five white balls in the August 11 drawing. The ticket sold in Georgia won the Match 5 prize of $1 million. The ticket sold in Florida doubled the Match 5 prize to win $2 million, because it included the Power Play® feature for an extra dollar.
The Powerball jackpot resets to $40 million for the Wednesday, Aug. 15 drawing. The 10X multiplier will be in play as part of the Power Play feature since the advertised annuitized jackpot is under $150 million.
