BOISE, ID - If you purchased an Idaho Lottery ticket this week, check it.
Lottery officials have confirmed Wednesday night’s $758.7 million Powerball jackpot produced a $50,000 winning ticket in Canyon County and a $200,000 winning ticket from Jerome County.
“Both tickets matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. The $200,000 winning ticket also has the PowerPlay which multiplied what is normally a $50,000 winner times four,” said Idaho Lottery spokesman David Workman.
The winning numbers from last night’s draw were 06, 07, 16, 23, 26 and the Powerball was 04. The PowerPlay was 4.
"We often see players who believe they didn’t win because they did not win the jackpot. In Idaho alone on Powerball, we had 43,492 winning tickets worth a total of $555,801 in other prizes,” said Idaho Lottery Director Jeff Anderson.
In addition to the wins on Powerball, the Idaho Lottery has also confirmed one Idaho Cash jackpot winning ticket worth $97,000 was sold in Ada County for last night’s draw. Idaho Cash is an Idaho-only jackpot game.
With the jackpot soaring to the second highest amount in United States history at $758.7 million, the dividends to Idaho are also increasing, Workman said. “During the current fiscal year, the dividend return to the State of Idaho for public schools and the State’s Permanent Building Fund from just Powerball sales is an estimated $3.3 million,” he stated.
Players have 180 days from Wednesday night’s draw to claim their prizes.
All prizes over $599 must be claimed at Idaho Lottery offices in Boise.
