Louisiana Gets A $100,000 Powerball Winner
I am pretty sure at least one Louisiana resident or at least someone who has visited our state recently had a Thanksgiving meal that was 100,000 times better than they thought it would be. That's because the Powerball drawing that was held on Thanksgiving Eve (Nov 21) has yielded yet another big money winner from a Louisiana purchased ticket.
The $100,000 winner matched four of the five white ball numbers and it also matched the Powerball. The ticket purchaser had also activated the PowerPlay feature of the game too. Here are the numbers that were drawn November 21, 2018.
Louisiana Lottery officials are reporting that the big money winner was sold in Marrero at the Discount Depot on the Westbank Expressway. There was no single ticket sold for the drawing that matched all the necessary numbers to claim the game's top prize.
That means Saturday's Powerball Jackpot will be an estimated $155 million when the ping pong balls are dropped at 9:59 Louisiana time Saturday night. The Mega Millions game did not get a big winner in its Tuesday drawing. However, there was a $10,000 winning ticket sold in West Monroe. The Mega Millions game will have a drawing tonight with the estimated top prize expected to be at least $155 million too.
