Posted: Updated:
EAST NEW YORK -

We now know Brooklyn was the lucky borough in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing.

The $298.3 million ticket was sold at an East New York gas station.

The last time a person won in New York City was this past November.  Robert Bailey won the largest Powerball in New York Lottery history at $343.8 million

Bailey bought his winning ticket at a Harlem deli. He took home the lump sum of $198 million.

Before that, a Staten Island man won a prize of $256.6 million in September.

The highest prize ever won was $1.586 billion, which was split between three couples in California, Tennessee and Florida.

The jackpot resets back to $40 million Saturday.
