I'd like to think that the person that purchased a Powerball ticket for last night's (April 18th) Powerball drawing was doing all the right things when they plunked down their money for their ticket. I hope they were wearing a mask and maybe even gloves and I hope this purchase wasn't their only reason for leaving the house. But just in case it was, it sure turned out to be worth it.

Louisiana Lottery officials have released information about the April 18th Powerball drawing that shows a ticket sold in the state is worth $100,000. That ticket matched four of the five white-ball numbers. It also matched the Powerball. The ticket purchaser also opted in for the PowerPlay, which turned out to be a wise move because it doubled the winnings for the ticket.

The winning numbers from the April 18, 2020 drawing were:

04 44 46 56 63    PB19   PPx2

The winning ticket sold in Louisiana was purchased at Lapalco Chevron on Lapalco Boulevard in Marrero Louisiana. If you're the holder of this ticket you'll want to sign the back of it and contact your local Louisiana Lottery office about how to receive your prize.

Now, what could you possibly do with all of that extra money?
