From The Daily Freeman:
The single winning ticket for a Saturday night $122,100,000 Powerball jackpot was sold in Catskill, according to the New York state Lottery Division website. The ticket was sold at the Clothespin Laundromat, Wal-Mart Plaza, U.S. Route 9W. Florine Fisher, who answered the phone at the laundromat and is a friend of the owner, said they did know Sunday who bought the ticket. The winning numbers were: 30, 31, 34, 45, 51, and the Power Ball number was 23.

Clothespin Laundromat was the first laundromat statewide to offer lottery tickets, owner Bahasu Patel said, and now laundromats are encouraged to carry lottery vending machines or have an attendant on hand to sell tickets.

“Somebody said the guy at the tobacco shop had won,” Patel said in a Daily Mail story on the winner, “but when someone went to check they said he hadn’t.”

Two other people Patel spoke with also thought an employee at Smoker’s Choice on Central Avenue had won Saturday night’s Powerball jackpot but no one could confirm it.
