Single Ticket Lays Claim to $394 Million Powerball Prize
UPDATE: Lottery officials have announced a $525,000 Lotto jackpot was won in Lafayette.
Darn, the Powerball jackpot was about to get really interesting and then someone had to go and win the darn money last night. That's right a single ticket sold in the Powerball drawing for January 29th, 2020 matched all the numbers necessary to lay claim to just under $400 million dollars.
The numbers that were spewed forth from the ping pong ball randomizer last night were:
That single ticket was sold in Florida. There was also a ticket sold in Florida that matched all five of the white ball numbers for prize of $1 million dollars too. We don't know but we kind of doubt both of those tickets were held by the same player.
The big money win means Saturday's Powerball jackpot will begin at $40 million dollars. If that's not enough money to motivate you to play, you might consider the Mega Millions game. The jackpot in that multi-state lottery game is estimated to be $155 million or more on Friday night.
