Fort Wayne retailer sells Powerball® ticket worth $1 million
Wednesday's jackpot jumps to an estimated $350 million
INDIANAPOLIS -- Someone who purchased a Powerball ticket at a Fort Wayne retailer for last night's drawing is now holding a $1 million winner.
The ticket, which was one of 16 nationwide to match the first five numbers but not the Powerball number, was purchased at Lassus Handy Dandy at 10040 Lima Road in Fort Wayne.
The winning numbers drawn were: 6-13-19-23-43 PB:16.
Whoever is holding the winning ticket should sign the back of it immediately and contact Hoosier Lottery Customer Service for more information on how to claim the prize.
No one nationwide matched all six numbers, so Wednesday's Powerball jackpot has grown to an estimated $350 million.
Tuesday's upcoming Mega Millions® drawing is also catching attention since no one hauled in Friday night's top prize. Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot has swelled to an estimated $170 million.
