Okay, first things first, it was not the almost $300 million jackpot. It was a $50,000 winner that matched four of the five white ball numbers and the Powerball. The ticket was sold at Nu Nu's Fresh Market on Lafayette Street in Youngsville. The ticket was from the December 16th drawing, that would be this past Saturday night. So, check your ticket to see if you matched those numbers.

In last night's Powerball drawing there was no big jackpot winner either. So that grand prize will now escalate to $300 million just in time for a Christmas miracle on December 23rd. Here are the numbers from Wednesday's draw:

01-20-61-64-69-PB=20

Powerball isn't the only multi-state lottery game that can change your life in time for Christmas. The Mega Millions Game is boasting a jackpot of $247 million. The next Mega Millions drawing will be on Friday night, tomorrow, December 22nd.

As always we encourage to play responsibly and to only spend what you can afford to lose. Best of luck and here's to an amazing holiday with a little help from some Christmas magic.
