MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) – The billion dollar Powerball drawing is Monday night, but someone has already won a really nice prize, $50,000!
The ticket was sold at Meridian’s North Hills Texaco. The lucky player matched 4 out of 5 white balls and the Powerball in the Oct. 29 drawing. If you bought a ticket, check it carefully!
Mississippi Lottery Corporation said there was another $50,000 winner in Leland, with the ticket purchased at Double Quick #61. Neither player selected the Powerplay option, which was 3. Doing so would have tripled their wins to $150,000.
Meanwhile, the jackpot for Monday night’s drawing is now an estimated $1 billion, with an estimated cash value of $497.3 million. If a player wins Monday’s jackpot, it will be the second largest jackpot in Powerball’s 30-year history and fifth largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.
