Winning Powerball ticket worth $245.6M sold in Staten Island

One lucky Staten Islander is holding the single, winning $245.6 million Powerball ticket, lottery officials said Sunday.

The golden ticket was sold at the Stop and Shop on Hylan Boulevard in New Dorp Beach on Saturday, lotto salesperson Montana Herrera told The Post.

“It would be nice to have sold the ticket to someone I know,” Herrera said, noting that following news of the winner, the shop was “more busy than usual.”

The winner has yet to come forward — but they’ll rake in about $147 million before taxes.

“I wish it was me. Too bad,” said shopper Mel Shamansky.

Another shopper, April Stewart said she “got all excited” when she heard about the jackpot winner.

“I checked my numbers and as usual, nothing,” she said. “I was hoping and I am back here trying again.”

Also Saturday, there was a winner in Florida of a secondary prize of $2 million and a winner in Georgia of a $1 million prize.
