He always chooses Quick Pick for his numbers and purchases his tickets from Ramey’s at 100 Highway 11 North in Poplarville.
Additionally, a player won $50,000 from the Powerball® drawing Wednesday, matching four out of five white balls and the Powerball. The winning Powerball numbers from Wednesday night’s drawing were: 22, 30, 40, 42 and 48 with a Powerball of 16 and a Power Play of 2. The player did not purchase the Power Play.
