A Louisiana-sold lottery ticket is worth $120,000 this morning. That is one of two big wins lottery officials have revealed since Saturday night's drawings. Here's what we know about the two big-money winning tickets.
The multi-state lottery game Powerball got another jackpot winner over the weekend. At the time of the game's drawing on Saturday night, the top prize was estimated to be $162.6 million. It was the second jackpot winner the game has produced in 2023. The previous jackpot of $754.6 million was won by a single ticket sold in the state of Washington.

Game officials say the winning Powerball ticket was sold in Dublin Virginia. A community that is located some 230 miles from the state's capital in Richmond. Lottery officials in Virginia say the ticket was purchased at Gill Brothers Gas Station.
Texas Lottery officials say a one million dollar winner for that same drawing was purchased in San Antonio. The jackpot winner and the Texas winner were the only million-dollar-plus wins associated with Saturday night's drawing.
In Louisiana, lottery officials here say the largest prize won by a Louisiana-sold ticket was $300. There were four of those sold in the state for Saturday's game. Tonight Powerball will begin a new jackpot at $20 million dollars. The drawing is scheduled for 10 pm Louisiana time.
