BOISE, Idaho – One lucky player is waking up with a million dollar smile this morning. Idaho had another million dollar winning Powerball ticket this time from northern Idaho.
The Idaho Lottery has confirmed that at least one winning ticket matched all five of the first numbers from last night’s $237.4 million Powerball draw and is worth $1 million. That winning ticket was sold at an Idaho Lottery retail location in Bonner County. The winning numbers were 08, 29, 41, 51, 58 and the Powerball was 05.
“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 5,900 winning Powerball tickets in Idaho from last night’s draw. With no jackpot winner, the estimated jackpot for Saturday night is now $267 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.
