$1 Million Winning Powerball Ticket Sold in Bonneville County

BOISE, Idaho ÔÇô The Idaho Lottery has confirmed that one winning Powerball ticket worth $1 million from last night's Powerball draw was sold in Bonneville County. The winning ticket has matched all five "white" ball numbers, but not the Powerball number itself. The winning numbers for last night┬┤s $144.6 million draw were 10, 29, 33, 41, 59 and the Powerball number was 15.

In addition to matching all five "white" ball numbers, the winning ticket has the PowerPlay option, turning the ticket into an automatic $1 million winner.

"We are encouraging everyone who played Powerball in the Bonneville County area for last night's draw to check their tickets carefully for winners," stated Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. "Too many times we've seen players look at their ticket and believe they were not a winner because they did not match the Powerball number. In this case, the winning ticket matched all five numbers, but not the Powerball. And with the PowerPlay option, that makes it a $1 million winner."

PowerPlay is a $1 per play add-on feature that multiplies all non-jackpot winning Powerball tickets from 2 to 5 times, depending on the number selected for that particular draw. Last night's PowerPlay number was 2. In the case of winning tickets that match only all five "white" ball numbers and have the PowerPlay option, since January 2009, these tickets automatically win $1,000,000, regardless of the multiplier selected for the draw.

There were over 9,200 individual winners on Powerball in Idaho last night, including last night's $1,000,000 winning ticket. No one won Saturday night's Powerball jackpot meaning the next jackpot for Wednesday night, March 10, 2010 is an estimated $170 million.

Players have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim their winnings from Lottery Offices in Boise. Players can check their tickets at any Idaho Lottery retailer or by visiting the Lottery's website at https://www.idaholottery.com/games/winning-numbers.
