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 on Popps Ferry Rd., 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.
The jackpots in the draw games continue to grow, led by tonight’s Mega Millions® jackpot, which has reached an estimated $259 million with an estimated cash value of $131.4 million. Tonight’s Mississippi Match 5 jackpot is worth an estimated $474,000. Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot is now up to an estimated $30 million with an estimated cash value of $15.3 million
