BOISE, Idaho – One lucky Idaho Lottery player’s Fourth of July Weekend is starting out with a million dollar bang. The Idaho Lottery confirmed this morning that one winning Powerball ticket which matched all five of the first numbers from Saturday night’s draw and worth $1 million was sold at an Idaho Lottery retail location in Oneida County along the Idaho-Utah border. The winning numbers from Saturday night’s draw were 19, 42, 45, 48, 53, and the Powerball was 16.
“We are encouraging everyone who played Powerball for Saturday 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 Saturday 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.
Saturday 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.
