$1 million Powerball winner in LaPlace

New Orleans, La. - No one in Louisiana came up the big winner in Wednesday night's $448 million Powerball drawing, but one person is a million dollars richer. A spokeswoman for the Louisiana Lottery says a ticket matching all 5 white balls, but not the Powerball number was purchased in LaPlace. The prize for that combination is $1 million. The store that sold the ticket, Pitt Stop Petroleum #1 on Airline Highway in LaPlace will receive a one-time bonus of $10,000. So far, no one has come forward yet to claim the big prize.

Four other tickets purchased in Louisiana are worth $10,000. Those tickets matched 3 white ball numbers as well as the Powerball. One of those tickets was purchased at the Winn Dixie in the 5400 block of Tchoupitoulas. The other 3 tickets were purchased in Lafayette, Ville Platte and DeQuincy.

As far as the big jackpot, at least three people in two states will split the $448.4 million jackpot, after two winning tickets were sold in New Jersey and one was sold in Minnesota. No winners have come forward yet to claim the jackpot. Winners in both states have a year from the date of the drawing to do so.

One of the winning New Jersey tickets was bought at a Super Stop & Shop store in South Brunswick and the other one was purchased at an Acme Markets store in Little Egg Harbor, said Judith Drucker, a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Lottery.

The winning Minnesota ticket was sold in Anoka County, which includes the city of Anoka and other suburbs north of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota Lottery spokeswoman Debbie Hoffmann said. The exact location wasn't revealed.

The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32. During the telecast, officials announced the jackpot that was pegged at $425 million previously in the day had grown amid a buying frenzy. Each winning ticket was worth $86 million before taxes, or $58.3 million after taxes, if taken in a lump sum. They are worth $149.4 million over 30 years if the winners choose the annuity option.
