If you were one of the many Mississippians who popped over the state line in your quest for the 435 million dollar Powerball jackpot, you might have had big plans for your win.
And with the news that the winning ticket was sold in Lafayette, folks who bought Powerball in the Creole State might have perked up.
But it was Lafayette, INDIANA. Not Lafayette, Louisiana.
Only one ticket boasted the winning numbers for the 435 million dollar jackpot. But you might have won a lesser prize. It’s worth the effort of fishing that ticket out of your pocket or purse: 10-13-28-52-61 and Powerball 2.
At least two second prize ticket holders will walk away with a million dollars apiece for matching five numbers, but without the red powerball.
This Saturday night the Powerball jackpot drops back to a ‘paltry’ 40 million dollars.
