BOISE, Idaho - One lucky Idaho Lottery player's Fourth of July Weekend is starting out with a million dollar bang.  The Idaho Lottery has confirmed that one winning ticket sold in Idaho matched all five of the first numbers from last night's $109.4 million Powerball draw and is worth $1 million.  The winning numbers were 19, 42, 45, 48, 53, and the Powerball was 16.

"We are encouraging everyone who played Powerball for last night's draw to check their tickets carefully for winners," 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."

Including the million dollar winning ticket, there were over 5,200 winning Powerball tickets in Idaho from last night's draw.  With no nationwide jackpot winner, the estimated jackpot for Wednesday night is now $121 million.

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

Last night's million dollar winner has 180 days to claim their prize from Idaho Lottery headquarters in Boise.  Idaho Lottery offices are open on Monday from 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM, but will be closed on Tuesday in observance of the July 4th holiday.
