It's to once again reach into your pockets and purses and see if that Powerball ticket you picked up on a whim is going to bring you a financial windfall. Saturday's drawing did not produce a big jackpot winner from the nationwide lottery game. However, it should put a nice chunk of change into at least one South Louisiana bank account.

If you purchased a ticket for the March 3rd drawing at Shop Rite #79 located on Country Club Road in Lake Charles you could be holding on to a ticket that is worth $50,000.00.Louisiana Lottery officials say a ticket that matched four of the five white ball numbers and the Powerball was sold at that location.

Here are the numbers from March 3rd: 13 17 25 36 40 PB 05

The next Powerball drawing will be held on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, at 9:59 PM Louisiana time. The estimated jackpot for that drawing is $348 million.

The Mega Millions game jackpot continues to grow as well. The next opportunity to play and win that jackpot will be Tuesday, March 6, 2018, also at 9:59 PM Louisiana time. The jackpot for the Mega Millions game is estimated to be $265 million.
