Another Big Money Powerball Ticket Sold In Louisiana
There wasn't a big jackpot winner in last night's Powerball drawing but one ticket holder who secured their ticket for last night's (August 10) drawing in Louisiana is feeling a bit more financially secure this morning.
Officials with the Louisiana Lottery say a Powerball ticket sold in the state is worth $50,000 after the numbers selected for that ticket matched four of the five white-ball numbers and the Powerball.
The numbers drawn in Saturday's Powerball game were:
35 41 44 58 59 PB 03 PP x3
The ticket that matched four of those five numbers and the Powerball was purchased in Jonesboro Louisiana. If it's been a while since you've studied your Lousiana geography Jonesboro is the seat of Jackson Parish and is located in the northeastern part of the state.
The $50,000 winner was secured at the Discount Tobacco Outlet on the Pershing Highway. Despite the $50,000 winner the Powerball jackpot will continue to grow until someone purchases a ticket that matches all of the numbers. The estimated jackpot for the Powerball game for Wednesday's drawing is $138 million.
The jackpot for the other multi-state lottery game played in Louisiana, the Mega Millions game, will have an estimated jackpot of $65 million when the ping pong balls drop on Tuesday evening.
