$50,000 Powerball Ticket Sold In Lafayette
If you recognize this Lafayette business and you purchased a Powerball ticket for the Wednesday night August 29th drawing from here. You might want to pull that ticket out and check your numbers.
I told you our luck was about to change when it came to the Powerball and the Mega Millions multi-state lottery games. Louisiana had been on quite a hot streak of big money lottery winners in the first few months of 2018. During the Summer months, our winning has cooled down a bit but, as I predicted we're back in the money again.
Wednesday night's Powerball drawing did not manufacture a huge jackpot winner. The next Powerball drawing on Saturday is anticipated to be $90 million. However, the August 29th drawing did produce a $50,000 winner on a ticket sold in Lafayette.
According to the Louisiana Lottery, the big money ticket was purchased at USA Food Express. That's located at 1600 Moss Street near the intersection with Pine Street. The ticket matched four of the five white ball numbers and the Powerball.
This $50,000 winner comes on the heels of a $1 million winning ticket that was sold in New Orleans in the French Quarter for the August 25th Powerball drawing. The next big money lottery opportunity you and I will have takes place Friday night when the Mega Millions jackpot is estimated to be $152 million. Good luck and please play responsibly and within your means.
