No big winners in Sat. Lotto, Powerball drawing


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Lottery Corp. reports that nobody won the major jackpots in the Louisiana Lotto and multistate Powerball drawings Saturday night. There was a winner of the top jackpot in the Easy 5 drawing for $50,000.

Louisiana Lotto players matching all six numbers drawn would have won or shared a $550,000 prize. The prize will rise to an estimated $575,000 for the next drawing, on Wednesday.

Powerball players matching all five numbers and the Powerball would have won or shared an $80 million jackpot. That prize will rise to an estimated $93 million for Wednesday.

The lottery says a ticket purchased in Madisonville had the matching numbers for Saturday night's Easy 5 jackpot of $50,000. Wednesday's Easy 5 drawing will again be worth $50,000.
