Powerball – Three Louisiana Tickets Claim Big Money Prizes
The Louisiana Lottery has confirmed that three tickets sold in the state for last night's (11/02) Powerball drawing are major prize winners. However, no single ticket sold for last night's game matched the numbers needed to claim Powerball's top prize of $1.2 billion dollars. That means the jackpot will continue to rise as we move toward the next drawing which is scheduled for Saturday night.
Officials with the Louisiana Lottery have confirmed that three state-sold tickets can lay claim to some of the Powerball game's top prizes. There were two $50,000 winners sold in the state as well as a $100,000 winner.
