$1,000,000 Powerball Winner!

BOISE, Idaho – Idaho has another $1,000,000 winner on Powerball.  One winning ticket for last night’s $151.2 million Powerball draw was sold at an Idaho Lottery retail location in Nez Perce County in north-central Idaho.  The Idaho Lottery has confirmed a single ticket matched all five of the first numbers, but not the Powerball number, and is worth $1,000,000.  The winning numbers from last night’s draw were 06, 08, 20, 42, 51 and the Powerball was 16.

“Luck happens every day in Idaho. Last night, in addition to the million dollar winner, we also had 5,190 winning tickets that won other prizes on Powerball,” said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. “We are encouraging everyone who played Powerball for last night’s draw to check their tickets carefully for winners. 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 $1,000,000.”

Last night’s big winning ticket is the Idaho Lottery’s ninth $1,000,000 winner on Powerball since 2005 and the thirty-fourth one million dollar or higher winning ticket in Idaho since 1989.

Last night’s winner has 180 days to claim their prize from Idaho Lottery headquarters in Boise.

 The new estimated Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night’s draw is now $173 million.
