powerball winner

ticket purchased in Rhode Island matched the numbers drawn Wednesday night in the multistate Powerball drawing and is worth $151.9 million, the Louisiana Lottery Corp. said.

The Powerball jackpot drops to $15 million for Saturday's drawing.

Matching the first five numbers drawn without matching the Powerball wins a $200,000 prize, and one winning ticket purchased in Louisiana, in Mandeville, matched those.

In the Louisiana Lotto game, players matching all six numbers drawn would have won or shared a $300,000 prize. That prize will grow to an estimated $325,000 for the next drawing, on Saturday.

In the Louisiana Lottery's Easy 5 game, there was one winning ticket worth $150,496 sold in St. Martin Parish. The Easy 5 jackpot will be $50,000 on Saturday.


One of the tickets sold in Rhode Island for the Wednesday Powerball matched all six numbers drawn, which were 8-23-32-37-39 and 38.

That ticket-holder wins the $151.9 million jackpot. The prize now goes to an estimated $15 million for Saturday's drawing.

Five tickets sold in Iowa, Louisiana, North Carolina and Rhode Island matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball. Those ticket-holders win $200,000 each.
