NEW YORK (WCBS 880/AP) -- Lottery officials say two tickets have won the estimated $687 million Powerball jackpot, and one of them was sold in Harlem.

Powerball officials say tickets purchased in New York and Iowa match all six numbers in Saturday night’s drawing.

The winning numbers were 8, 12, 13, 19 and 27, and Powerball 4.

The jackpot is the fourth-largest in U.S. history.

New York Lottery officials say the winning ticket was sold at West Harlem Deli at 2040 Fifth Ave.

It comes four days after someone won a $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot, the second-largest lottery prize. The ticket was sold in South Carolina.

Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., the U.S Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
