Double-Luck winner surprise in March

One Mississippi Lottery player matched all five white ball winning numbers to win $1 million in Monday night’s Powerball® drawing, and 23 players ran into extra luck while claiming their prizes at the Lottery Claims Center in March.

A ticket sold at Sprint Mart #27 in Corinth for the drawing matched all five white ball winning numbers. The player did not purchase the Power Play option for an additional dollar, or they would have won $2 million.  

The winning Powerball numbers from last night’s drawing were: 16-30-31-54-68 with a Powerball of 1 and a Power Play of 2.
