BOISE -- The Idaho Lottery announced there were two big winning tickets sold in Idaho for games played Saturday night.
The first one was Powerball ticket worth $1 million that was sold in Oneida County, near the Idaho-Utah border. A single ticket matched all five of the first numbers, but not the Powerball number. The winning numbers from Saturday night's draw were 01, 06, 07, 20, 49, and the Powerball number was 23. This is the fourth, seven-figure winner in the past nine weeks.
Additionally, a winning ticket for the Weekly Grand jackpot was purchased in Ada County. The game has jackpots that pay $1,000 each week for a year after taxes are paid by the Idaho Lottery. The winning numbers for the Weekly Grand jackpot on Saturday night were 04, 05, 10, 22, 32. The winning ticket matched all five numbers.
"Idaho continues to be a lucky place for all of our games. We are encouraging everyone who played Powerball and Weekly Grand for last night's draw to check their tickets carefully for winners," said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director.
Idaho’s lucky streak on Powerball began with a $1 million winning Powerball ticket sold for the June 20, 2102 draw in Meridian. It remains unclaimed. Brian Reed of Sandpoint claimed a $1 million Powerball prize in July and just two weeks ago, a $2 million Powerball ticket was claimed by Mike and Mary Rodrigue of South Jordan, Utah who split their ticket with Dennis and Jennifer Baldwin of Salmon.
None of the tickets sold for Saturday's Powerball matched all five numbers and the Powerball, so the estimated jackpot for Wednesday night's draw is now $70 million.
