Powerball luck finds Idaho with a $2 million winner sold in Twin Falls County

BOISE, Idaho – Someone who purchased a Powerball with PowerPlay ticket for last night’s $110 million Powerball draw is holding a ticket worth $2 million. The Idaho Lottery has confirmed that one ticket sold at an Idaho Lottery retail location in Twin Falls County matched the first five numbers of last night’s draw, but not the Powerball, and has the PowerPlay option. The winning numbers for last night’s draw are 29, 30, 40, 42, 50 and the Powerball was 16.

“Idaho continues to be a lucky place for players to play and win big prizes on Powerball.  Last night in addition to the $2 million winner we also had over 3,400 winning Powerball tickets that won other prizes,” 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 and to sign their tickets prior to presenting them for payment. 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, has the PowerPlay option, and is worth $2 million.”

PowerPlay is a $1option, selected at the time of purchase and increases non-jackpot winning tickets up to $2 million. A ticket that matches the first five numbers is worth $1 million, however, for the extra $1, that ticket is now a $2 million winner.

Last night’s big winning ticket is the Idaho Lottery’s 31st $1 million or higher winner on Powerball and the 51st $1 million 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.

There was no jackpot winner nationwide for Powerball.  The new estimated Powerball jackpot for Saturday night’s draw is now $125 million.
