California Ticket Wins Powerball – Louisiana Gets 5 Big Winners
Lottery players in Louisiana your dreams of winning a billion dollars in the Powerball Lottery game have come to an end for now. Officials with the multi-state lottery game say a single ticket sold in Los Angeles, California matched the numbers needed to claim the game's top prize of $1,079,800,000.00 in Wednesday night's drawing.
But if you played Powerball last night in Louisiana, you still need to double-check your numbers because there were two $50,000 winners and three other tickets worth $100,000 each sold in the state for last night's drawing. Here's how the drawing unfolded on July 19, 2023.
The Powerball website has confirmed that the numbers drawn last night were:
As you might imagine with a billion plus dollars on the line there were a lot of tickets sold for the July 19th drawing. The more tickets, the more winners including three two million dollar Match 5 winners in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. And there was a plethora of Match 5 one million dollar winners as well including four million dollar wins confirmed by the Texas Lottery.
Incidentally, the Texas Lottery has revealed the one million dollar winning tickets were sold in Houston, San Marcos, Pleasanton, and Forney. There were 24 $50,000 winners and 13 $100,000 winners sold in Texas for the Powerball game too. So, if you bought a ticket in the Lone Star State, you certainly need to review your numbers.
