$100,000 Powerball ticket sold in Saucier
While no one hit Saturday’s Powerball® jackpot, there were two $100,000 tickets sold in Mississippi — including one in Saucier.
Tonight’s drawing — if there is a winner — will be for an estimated $747 million, ranking it the fifth largest Powerball jackpot to date. The cash value is an estimated $403.1 million.
The two winning tickets each worth $100,000 matched four out of five white balls plus the Powerball. Additionally, both players paid the extra $1 for the Power Play option, increasing their initial wins of $50,000 to $100,000.
The winning Saucier ticket is from Keith’s Superstore #107 on Highway 49 in Saucier. The other player bought their winning ticket from a Shell on Church Road in Southaven.
The Mississippi Lottery also announced yet another jackpot increase for the in-state game Mississippi Match 5 ahead of tomorrow night’s drawing on Feb. 7. The previously advertised estimated jackpot for $810,000 was increased Monday morning to an estimated $880,000.
“Unprecedented sales are the reason we decided to increase the estimated jackpot,” said Mississippi Lottery President Jeff Hewitt.
The drawing tomorrow night will be the 25th roll in the current run. The jackpot was last hit on Dec. 10, 2022, and will continue to grow until there is a winner.
Four days remain for the player who purchased a winning $500,000 Powerball ticket from the Aug. 13, 2022, drawing. They have until Lottery HQ close of business Feb. 9 to claim the winning ticket.
Three new scratch-off games will be available in Mississippi retailers starting tomorrow and include a new $20 game featuring a top of $500,000.
