FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOISE, Idaho – For the fourth time in two weeks, Idaho had another Powerball player one number away from winning the jackpot. Brent Camphouse, from Rexburg, was the big winner of $150,000 when he matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball from the Saturday, March 21, 2021 draw. His ticket also had the PowerPlay feature, which was 3X that Saturday night, and tripled his non-jackpot winning prize from $50,000 up to $150,000.
Camphouse is described as a very faithful customer of Maverik, so much that his wife and the employees of Maverik refer to him as “The Maverik Man.” His loyalty paid off. His big winning ticket was purchased from the Maverik in Rexburg on Main Street, just off Highway 20.
“I checked my winning numbers on the Lottery’s website. I sure was happy I had PowerPlay,” explained Camphouse when, along with his wife and grandson, he claimed his prize at Lottery offices in Boise on Thursday.
After finding out they won, Brent’s wife notified her part-time job that she was officially retiring so that she could be home with her husband who is also enjoying retirement. “I don’t even think my boss believes me,” she said.
For their part in selling the winning ticket, Maverik receives a $15,000 bonus from the Idaho Lottery.
On Wednesday evening, March 24, 2021, the Idaho Lottery also had a $100,000 winning Powerball ticket that was sold at a retail location in Ada County that matched all four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. This ticket also has the PowerPlay feature and is worth $100,000. The winner has not contacted the Idaho Lottery. The winning numbers from Wednesday night’s draw were 4, 9, 17, 27, 38, the Powerball was 18 and the PowerPlay multiplier for the draw was 2X. The Powerball jackpot for Saturday night is $238 million.
