BOISE, Idaho - One lucky Idaho Lottery player┬┤s Fourth of July Weekend is starting out with a million dollar bang. The Idaho Lottery has confirmed that one winning ticket sold in Idaho matched all five of the first numbers from last night┬┤s $109.4 million Powerball draw and is worth $1 million. The winning numbers were 19, 42, 45, 48, 53, and the Powerball was 16.
"We are encouraging everyone who played Powerball for last night┬┤s draw to check their tickets carefully for winners," said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. "Too often we see players not match the Powerball and think they do not have a winning ticket. In this case, the ticket matched all five of the first numbers and is worth $1 million."
Including the million dollar winning ticket, there were over 5,200 winning Powerball tickets in Idaho from last night┬┤s draw. With no nationwide jackpot winner, the estimated jackpot for Wednesday night is now $121 million.
The Idaho Lottery also encourages everyone to sign the back of their tickets prior to presenting them for payment.
Last night┬┤s million dollar winner has 180 days to claim their prize from Idaho Lottery headquarters in Boise. Idaho Lottery offices are open on Monday from 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM, but will be closed on Tuesday in observance of the July 4th holiday.
