UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler Newks) Somebody in California won the $425-million Powerball jackpot last night. One ticket sold in the Bay Area town of Milpitas matched all the numbers, to win the sixth-highest jackpot in U-S lottery history.
Two players in Wisconsin each won $10,000 by matching four regular numbers plus the Powerball. Those tickets were sold in Horicon and Johnson Creek.
Just over 48,000 Wisconsin players won smaller prizes. That's almost twice as many winners as the previous drawing last Saturday night, as ticket sales again went through the roof. In neighboring Minnesota, officials said tickets for last night's drawing were three-and-a-half times the norm.
Last night's numbers were 1, 17, 35, 49, and 54. The Powerball was 34, and the Power Play multiplier was three. The jackpot goes back to 40-million dollars for Saturday night. Mega Millions' still has a high jackpot -- 172-million for tomorrow night.
