Check those tickets because there was a big winner in Albany! Cumberland Farms at 1870 Western Avenue has recently become the talk of the town selling a whopping $50,000 ticket, turning an ordinary day into an extraordinary one for one lucky customer.

The Cumberland Farms store in the heart of Albany, is a popular spot for locals to grab their morning coffee, fill up their gas tanks, and, of course, try their luck with lottery tickets. On this particular day, the stars aligned for one fortunate individual who decided to purchase a Powerball ticket.

The winning ticket matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball, enough to secure the $50,000 prize. The numbers drawn that day were 14, 20, 39, 65, 67, and the Powerball was 2. The Power Play multiplier, which could have doubled the prize to $100,000, was not part of this winning ticket.

The news of the winning ticket spread quickly throughout the community, sparking excitement and a flurry of ticket-checking. The identity of the winner remains unknown, as they have yet to come forward to claim their prize. According to the New York Lottery rules, winners have up to one year from the date of the drawing to claim their winnings.

The sale of this $50,000 Powerball ticket has certainly added a dash of excitement to the daily routine of Albany locals. As the city waits for the winner to come forward, the buzz continues. Who knows? The next big winner could be just around the corner, perhaps even at the same Cumberland Farms store. After all, in the game of Powerball, anything is possible.
