QUEENSBURY - A lucky group in Queensbury is about to be $1 million richer. They bought a second-place ticket in this weekend’s big Powerball drawing.

The group works at the 99 Restaurant in Aviation Mall. Their ticket was only one number off.

The ticket was pruchased at the Hess Mart on Aviation Road.

While $1 million is a nice chunk of change, it's nothing compared to the $590.5 million first-place jackpot. That winning ticket was sold in Zephyrhills, Florida, near Tampa.
