A Powerball ticket worth $100,000 was sold in Bannock County.
The Idaho Lottery has confirmed that one ticket sold in the county for Saturday night’s draw matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. The winning numbers were 06, 20, 29, 57 and 59, and the Powerball was 22.
Matching four of the first five numbers plus the Powerball is typically a $50,000 win, according to the Idaho Lottery.
But with the PowerPlay multiplier, players can multiply non-jackpot prizes by the PowerPlay number chosen for that draw. On Saturday night, the PowerPlay number was 2, making this ticket worth $100,000.
"We often see players who believe they didn’t win because they did not match all the numbers to win the jackpot,” said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery director. “In Idaho alone on Powerball, we had 4,673 winning tickets worth a total of $125,963 in other prizes.”
However, the Idaho Lottery did not say where in Bannock County the winning ticket was sold. The Idaho Lottery also encourages everyone to sign the back of their tickets prior to presenting them for payment.
Saturday night's $100,000 winner has 180 days to claim their prize from Idaho Lottery headquarters in Boise.
Last week, Zane Powell, of Rexburg, claimed a Powerball ticket worth $200,000. That ticket was purchased in Jerome County while Powell was working construction.
