Winning Powerball ticket sold in Merrick

Posted: Updated:

A winning Powerball ticket was sold at the BP Gas and Repair Station on Merrick Avenue in Merrick.

Whoever bought the winning ticket hasn't been identified yet, but News 12's Antoinette Biordi went to the station to see if she could find the lucky winner.

"I'm a winner in life, just not the winner of $148 million that's for sure," said Joe Whalen.

Jimmy DiNapoli, of Merrick, says he always gets his tickets there.

"I always come here because I get my gas here. Are you sure it's not me?" DiNapoli said. "I don't know who the person is but I'm sure they're smiling."
