CHICAGO (STMW) – Saturday night’s $70 million Powerball jackpot went to a player in New York state, but someone who bought their ticket on the South Side came out pretty well, though.

The winning numbers in Saturday night’s drawing were: 06 – 11 – 42 – 53 and 54, and the Power Ball number was 07.

Though the New York player matched all the numbers drawn, in Illinois someone who bought their ticket at The Neighborhood Store, 8313 S. Racine Av., matched five of five numbers and will collect $1 million, according to the Illinois Lottery.

Another three Illinois players matched four of five numbers and the Power Ball, and they will each collect $10,000.

The next Powerball drawing will be held Wednesday. The grand prize for that game is $40 million.
