Big Lottery Jackpot Tickets Sold in Poughkeepsie and Wappingers
Thanksgiving week was very lucky for some Hudson Valley lottery players who snagged big jackpots.
I guess the Hudson Valley is the place to be if you want to win the lottery these days. There have been some big jackpot winners crowned right here in our region over the past few weeks. The streak began just before Halloween when someone in Orange County hit the Powerball. Unfortunately, they didn't win the $700 million jackpot on October 28, but they did match enough of the numbers to snag a second-place jackpot of $1 million.
Just a few weeks later the winning continued when another Orange County lottery player hit it big. A ticket sold in Newburgh wound up matching enough of the Pick Six numbers to get the second-place prize of $313,715. It appeared that Orange County was quickly becoming the luckiest place to buy a ticket, but that has all changed since two big Dutchess County winners were announced during Thanksgiving week.
