Top prize for Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing was $434.8 million. No one won the big one.

And, it turned out, no one hit the second-place prize.

But there was a third-place winner — worth a cool $50,000 — sold on Long Island.

New York State Lottery officials said Friday that ticket was sold at Jay Cards & Gifts on Old Bethpage Road in Old Bethpage, one of three sold statewide with four of the five numbers, plus the Powerball number, correct. The other two tickets were sold in Nyack and in the Bronx, officials said.

The numbers drawn Wednesday were 10, 47, 50, 65 and 68 with a Powerball of 24. The top prize is awarded for matching all of the numbers correctly, while second prize — worth $1 million — is awarded for hitting all five pool numbers without the matching Powerball number.

The top prize for the next drawing, scheduled for Saturday evening, is now $478 million with a cash value of $330.6 million.

The winners may claim the tickets at any one of the Lottery’s Customer Service Centers statewide, including the Long Island office at 45 South Service Rd., Plainview, or at Resorts World Casino New York City, 110-00 Rockaway Blvd., Jamaica.
