A Powerball ticket worth $100,000 and winning third prize was sold in New York.
The ticket was purchased for Monday's drawing
and had four matching numbers and a Powerball.
The winning numbers for the draw were 17, 26, 37, 61, 65
for the white balls and 2 for the red Powerball. The ticket was a Power Play ticket
meaning the original prize amount was tripled to $100,000 due to a Power Play multiplier of 2.
The Power Play feature allows winners to multiply non-jackpot prizes by
2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 times for an additional $1 per play.
Powerball tickets can be bought from any New York Lottery retailer for $2, seven days a week.
The deadline for purchasing a ticket is 9:45 p.m. on draw nights
which are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.
The New York Lottery encourages players to buy their tickets early to avoid last-minute lines.

The jackpot for the draw to be held on Wednesday night is an estimated $526 million.
