No tickets matched all six numbers to win the $360 million Powerball jackpot last night, so the jackpot will roll to $475 million – the second largest ever – for Saturday night’s drawing. One player in Missouri matched all five white-ball numbers in last night’s drawing to win a $1 million prize. That ticket was sold at Telegraph Liquors, 5661 Telegraph Road, in St. Louis.
“We want to remind players to check their tickets closely,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “Even though you might not have matched all six numbers, you may have won one of the eight other prizes.”
Another player in Missouri also matched four white-ball numbers and the Powerball to win $10,000. That ticket was sold at QuikTrip, 16100 Manchester Road, in Ellisville. In all, more than $1.3 million in Powerball prizes, ranging from $4 to $1 million, were sold in Missouri. The winning numbers were: 2, 11, 26, 34, 41, and the Powerball number was 32.
Reardon also reminds players to play within their means.
“It only takes one ticket to win,” she said.
Players have until 8:59 p.m. Saturday to purchase Powerball tickets in Missouri.
In addition to Powerball, the Mega Millions jackpot for Friday night’s drawing is also high – an estimated $190 million.
