Lottery players in Louisiana have made real money playing the two multi-state lottery games that can be played in the state, Powerball and Mega Millions. In fact, just days after a Louisiana supermarket sold a $1,000,000 winner in the Mega Millions game, it was announced that the same location had sold another big money winner.
Lottery players in Louisiana have won big cash prizes in two of the last three draws for Mega Millions and Powerball. Lottery officials announced that a ticket sold for Tuesday’s Mega Millions game was worth $30,000 and a ticket sold for Wednesday’s Powerball game was worth $100,000 this morning.
Let’s consider each of these drawings separately. First, here are the numbers drawn for the August 2nd Mega Millions game.
The numbers drawn for August 2, according to the Mega Millions website, were:
10 14 25 37 63 Mega Ball 14 Megapliers x3
Not a single ticket matched all of the numbers required to win the game’s $20 million top prize, but one ticket sold in Pennsylvania matched all of the white ball numbers, and they had called the Megaplier option, so the ticket was worth $3 million.
In Louisiana, a $30,000 Mega Millions winner sold in Port Allen at Circle K 2706805 on Lobdell Highway. This ticket matched four of the cue balls, the Mega Ball, and the ticket purchaser chose the Megaplier option.
Coincidentally, this is the same Circle K store that sold a $1,000,000 Mega Millions winner in last Friday’s $1.2 billion draw. This ticket was one of eight tickets sold in the state for this draw that can claim a prize of $10,000 or more.
Meanwhile, in last night’s Powerball draw, another Louisiana lottery player raked in a lot of money. But not as big as a single ticket holder in Pennsylvania. This Pennsylvania ticket matched all of the numbers required to win the $202 million jackpot. Here’s the drawing in case you missed it.
The numbers chosen, according to the Powerball website, were:
09 21 56 57 66 Powerball 11 Powerplay x2
The big winner in Louisiana can claim $100,000. According to the lottery’s website, the Louisiana winner was purchased at Red Zone Magazine on Magazine Street in New Orleans. The ticket buyer picked four of the five white balls, the powerball, and the player chose the powerplay option.
So here we are with Powerball and Mega Millions and the jackpots after this flurry of winning activity. The next multi-state lottery draw will be held Friday night. It will be in the Mega Millions game that the estimated jackpot is $36 million.
Since Powerball just won last night, that jackpot resets to $20 million and the next draw will be on Saturday night. For both games, the draws will take place at 9:59 am Louisiana time on the respective draw dates, and by rule, ticket sales must stop at least one hour before the draw.
