One Western New Yorker is cashing in thanks to the Powerball.

Chrissy didn’t win the grand prize in Saturday's drawing but she did win $50,000. “It's just wonderful, I'm just so happy,” she said.

Five people won $1 million and 79 won $50,000 in NYS in Wednesday's drawing

The winner hit five of the six numbers, four standard numbers and she matched the Powerball. Nick Green sold the winning ticket.

A WNY woman won $1 million in a drawing last week

“It kind of made my day like honestly. I've just been saying I don't care who wins I just hope whoever wins just needs the money and I'm so glad that she won and she came from my store and bought it from me and it makes me super happy.”

Chrissy bought her ticket at the 7-Eleven on Sheridan Drive in Amherst and has big plans, but not for herself.

“Savannah (daughter), I love you, and you're getting your new car.”
