Million Dollar Ticket Sold in Boise Not Twin Falls [Update]
Update (9/16/13 @1:06pm) - According to the Idaho Lottery, the million dollar ticket was not sold in Twin Falls County, but Boise. A $40,000 was sold in Twin Falls.
Idaho got another helping of lotto luck this weekend, as a $1 million Powerball ticket was sold in the Magic Valley. The Idaho Lottery says they confirmed that at least one winning ticket matched all five of the first numbers from last night's $301.3 million Powerball draw.
The winning ticket was sold at a retail location in Twin Falls County, officials said. The winning numbers were 01, 17, 25, 37, 44 and the Powerball was 20. The Lottery also says a $40,000 ticket was sold in Boise. "We are encouraging everyone who played Powerball for last night's draw to check their tickets carefully," 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." Last night's million dollar winner was the fourth in Idaho in the past ten weeks. With no jackpot winner, the estimated jackpot for Wednesday night is now $400 million.
