Lottery players in Louisiana have had a very big weekend. Friday night's Mega Millions game generated a $40,000 winner that was sold in Louisiana. And, we have now confirmed that the Powerball drawing from last night, Saturday January 21, also produced a big money prize winner off of a Louisiana sold ticket. That prize is worth $50,000.

We should note that no tickets sold for Saturday's drawing matched the numbers needed to claim the game's jackpot. At the time of the drawing, the top prize was estimated to be, $476.7 million dollars.

Here's the way the balls bounced during the January 21, 2023 drawing.

The Powerball website confirms that the numbers chosen were:

05   14   19   46   64   Powerball 22   Power Play x4

As we mentioned the game did not produce a jackpot winner. There were also no Match 5 winners either. But we do have confirmation of at least two $50,000 winners. The Texas Lottery has confirmed a $50,000 winner was sold there for last night's drawing but the ticket's point of purchase was not confirmed.

The Louisiana Lottery has confirmed the point of purchase for the $50,000 winner that was sold in The Boot. The ticket matched four of the five white ball numbers and the Powerball. The ticket's purchaser did not opt for the Power Play option. Lottery officials say that ticket was sold in Harahan Louisiana.

The big money winner was sold at Sav N Time in the 6900 block of Jefferson Highway. Across the state last night's Powerball only generated 31 winners of $100 or more. But as the game's top prize continue to rise, there is no doubt we will see more winners as more players buy into the game.

Speaking of the jackpot, Monday's Powerball jackpot will be an estimated $502 million dollars. Or, just a shade over half of a billion. That's if you go with the annuity payment plan. If you win and choose the lump sum your payout would be $271 million or so.

There were no winners in Lotto or Easy 5 on Saturday night. Friday's Mega MIllions game did not generate a jackpot winner either. The jackpot on that game will be $31 million on Tuesday.
