The Idaho Lottery has confirmed that one winning Powerball ticket from last night's $302.5 million draw has matched four of the first five numbers, and the Powerball. In addition, the Powerball ticket has the PowerPlay option. This ticket is worth $150,000. Last night's winning numbers were 03, 15, 29, 54, 57 and the Powerball was 10. The PowerPlayfor last night's draw was 3.
"We are encouraging everyone who played Powerball in the northern Idaho area last night to check their tickets carefully for winners and sign the back of them immediately," said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. "In addition to last night's big winner, there were 6,500 winning tickets in Idaho that won prizes worth $190,000."
PowerPlay is a multiplier feature on regular Powerball tickets. For an additional $1 per play at the time of purchase, players can multiply all prizes of $50,000 or less by the number selected for the draw. Last night's PowerPlay number was 3, turning this $50,000 prize into a $150,000 winner.
This is the second Wednesday in a row where a winning Powerball ticket with PowerPlay sold in Kootenai County matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball, and is worth $150,000. Last Wednesday's winning ticket remains unclaimed.
There was no jackpot winner from last night's Powerball draw. The new estimated jackpot for Saturday night's Powerball draw is $333 million. The Idaho Lottery encourages all who participate in Saturday night's draw to do so in a responsible manner.
