Idaho Lottery officials have confirmed that one winning ticket sold in Ada County matched all five of the first numbers from last Saturday’s $133.2 million Powerball draw -- and is worth $2 million.  

The winning numbers were 17, 18, 24, 25, 31 and the Powerball was 24.  

"We are encouraging everyone who played Powerball for (Saturday) night's draw to check their tickets carefully," Idaho Lottery Director Jeff Anderson. "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 also has the PowerPlay feature, which makes it a $2 million winner." 

Including the two million-dollar winning ticket, there were over 5,200 winning Powerball tickets in Idaho from Saturday night's draw. 

The Idaho Lottery also encourages everyone to sign the back of their tickets prior to presenting them for payment.

The two million-dollar winner has 180 days to claim their prize from Idaho Lottery headquarters in Boise.
