Powerball Ticket Worth $50,000 Claimed

Tuesday drawings: Mega Millions reaches an est. $259 million; Mississippi Match 5 grows to an est. $474,000

JACKSON, MISS. – One lucky Mississippi Lottery player from Biloxi claimed $50,000 from the Wednesday, Nov. 9, drawing of Powerball®.

The Biloxi man said he enjoys playing Powerball and has played the same numbers since the 1980s. He purchased his winning ticket from Polks Crossgates Discount in Biloxi. The player matched four out of five white balls and the Powerball.

However, he did not purchase the Powerplay option, which was 2. Adding the $1 Powerplay would have increased his win to $100,000.
