Louisiana Ticket is $50,000 Winner in Saturday’s Powerball
Lottery players in Louisiana had a pretty good Saturday night. Based on information we've been able to glean from the Louisiana Lottery website it appears as if players in Louisiana earned two big money prizes from two different games. One of the wins was a $50,000 winner from the multi-state game Powerball. The other was a $90,000 win in the Easy 5 drawing on Saturday.
Here's the way Saturday's Powerball drawing played out.
The numbers that were drawn on Saturday, August 26, 2023, were:
20 22 26 28 63 Powerball 05 Power Play x3
The official Powerball website will confirm those were the numbers drawn for Saturday night's game. That same website also confirmed there was no ticket sold across the Powerball footprint that matched the numbers needed to claim the game's top prize of an estimated and annuitized amount of $344,500,000.00.
There was one Match 5 prize of one million dollars that was won by a ticket sold in Michigan, but other than that there were no other million-dollar-plus prizes from Saturday's drawing. Tonight's Powerball top prize will be an estimated $363,000,000 that's the annuitized amount. The lump sum cash payment would be $147.7 million dollars.
As we mentioned the Louisiana Lottery did confirm a $50,000 winning ticket was sold in the state for Saturday's game. However, the Lottery has not released that ticket's point of purchase information so as of this writing we do not know where that ticket was sold.
We also know there was a $90,000 jackpot winning ticket sold for Saturday's Easy 5 drawing. The point of purchase information for that ticket winner has not been released by the Louisiana Lottery as of this report either. However, we'll update the information for you as it is made available.
The winning numbers for Saturday's Easy 5 were: 06 07 11 23 25
