Another $1,000,000 Powerball winner sold in eastern Idaho

 

BOISE, Idaho – Idaho has another million dollar winning Powerball ticket and once again it is from the eastern side of the Gem State. The Idaho Lottery has confirmed one winning ticket matched all five of the first numbers from last night´s $183.1 million Powerball draw and is worth $1 million. The winning ticket was sold at an Idaho Lottery retail location in Bannock County. The winning numbers were 11, 16, 33, 40, 41 and the Powerball was 34.

 

"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 5,800 winning Powerball tickets in Idaho from last night´s draw. With no jackpot winner, the estimated jackpot for Wednesday night is now $208 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.
