The Louisiana Lottery's Big Wins Page is reporting that the $100,000 winner was sold at a Murphy USA station in Marrero. The ticket matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball. The ticket purchaser also opted in on the Powerplay option which is why the prize of $50,000 was doubled to $100,000.
The Lottery's Big Wins Page indicates that there were 13 tickets sold in the state that have a prize value of $100 this morning. Another five tickets matched enough numbers and opted in on the Powerplay to lay claim to a prize of $200.

There were no big winners sold for Friday's Mega Millions game. That game's top prize will be an estimated $231 million on Tuesday night.
