FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOISE, Idaho – Powerball luck has found Idaho once again! The Idaho Lottery has confirmed that one large winning ticket sold in Twin Falls County matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball number from last night's $185.7 million Powerball draw and is worth $150,000. The ticket includes PowerPlay. Last night’s winning numbers are 25, 30, 53, 59, 60 and the Powerball was 5. The PowerPlay multiplier was 3.
"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 realize they have a big winning ticket because they did not win the jackpot. In this case, the ticket matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball, plus has PowerPlay, which turns what would have been a $50,000 winner into a $150,000 winner!"
Beginning on August 23, 2021, all Powerball tickets in Idaho will include PowerPlay. PowerPlay multiplies non-jackpot winning tickets 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 ten times, depending on the number randomly selected before the draw.
Including the $150,000 winning ticket there were over 4,100 winning Powerball tickets in Idaho from last night's draw.
The Idaho Lottery also encourages everyone to sign the back of their tickets immediately and prior to presenting them for payment.
Last night's $150,000 winner has 180 days to claim their prize from Idaho Lottery headquarters in Boise, either by mail or in person.
