Powerball Ticket Worth $1 Million Sold in Portsmouth, NH
New Hampshire is proving to be a lucky state for Powerball as another ticket worth $1 million was sold for Saturday's drawing.
The numbers drawn on Saturday night were: 1, 4, 11, 59 and 67 with a Power Ball 10 and Power Play 2X. The winning million-dollar ticket matching the five white balls did not match the Power Ball.
NH Lottery spokeswoman Maura McCann told Seacoast Current the winning ticket worth $1 million was sold at Cabot Street Market on Cabot Street in Portsmouth.
According to the Powerball website, a winning ticket that matched 4 white balls and the Power ball worth $50,000 was sold in Massachusetts.
Tickets matching the five white ball numbers but not the Power Ball were also sold in Florida, Illinois, New Jersey and Tennessee. Two tickets sold in Maryland and Virginia included a Power Play which increased their value to $2 million.
No ticket sold in the multi-state game won the jackpot, which increases to $186 million ($134.6 million cash) for Wednesday's drawing. The jackpot has been growing since the last winner on June 5 which was sold in Florida.
McCann said Saturday's was the sixth Powerball ticket worth greater than $1 million sold in New Hampshire in 2021. Two Powerball tickets worth one million each were played in New Hampshire for the drawing of July 10. One was sold at Winners Corner on Mast Road in Manchester while the other ticket that included a Power Play was played on the NH iLottery platform.
The others were sold a $2 million ticket for the January 16 drawing at Gomarlos in Swanzey, another for $2 million at Sun Mart in Milford for January 23, and a ticket worth $1 million at Hampstead Variety in Hampstead was sold for May 22.
The MegaMillions jackpot is also growing with a jackpot of $153 million ($110.1 million cash) up for grabs in Tuesday's drawing.
The Powerball game will expand to a third drawing every week with the addition of a Monday drawing starting August 23.
