ÔÇïBOISE, Idaho ÔÇô One lucky winning Powerball ticket from last night's draw worth $200,000 could be helping someone in Idaho to have a much happier holiday season. The winning numbers for last night's $66.8 million Powerball draw were 12, 13, 14, 35, 41 and the Powerball was 29. The winning ticket matched all five numbers but not the Powerball.
"Too often people think they do not have a winning ticket if they did not match the Powerball number itself," stated Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. "We are encouraging everyone who had a Powerball ticket for last night's draw to check their tickets carefully. This ticket did not match the Powerball number, but did match every other number making it a $200,000 winner."
The Idaho Lottery is currently working to verify the location of where the winning ticket from last night was sold. There were a total of 6,885 Idaho winners from last night's Powerball draw, including the $200,000 winner.
"The individual holding the $200,000 winning ticket from last night should sign the back of it immediately," added Anderson.
The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night's draw is an estimated $77 million.
