Winning $200,000 Powerball ticket purchased in Prineville
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Saturday, March 8, Drawing Worth An Estimated $200 Million

While there was no winning grand prize Powerball ticket on Saturday night’s draw, there was a $600,000 Power Play winner from Idaho, and eleven $200,000 winners – including a ticket purchased in Prineville, Oregon.

According to Powerball's local media representative, Chuck Bauman, until the lucky Prineville winner has his ticket validated, policy dictates that the specific retail location where the ticket was purchased can not be released.

The jackpot for the Saturday, March 8th drawing will be $200 million with the cash option at $99.2 million.

The other winning $200,00 winning tickets that matched all 5 white ball numbers included purchases in the states of Idaho (1), Indiana (1), Kentucky (1), Nebraska (1), Hew Hampshire (1), Pennsylvania (2), South Dakota (1), Tennessee (1), and Wisconsin (1).

The numbers drawn Wednesday evening were 10, 15, 16, 23, 31, and the Powerball was 5. The Power Play multiplier was 3.

Eighty-one tickets matched 4 white numbers plus the Powerball and won $10,000. Eleven additional players of that prize level wisely purchased the Power Play and had their prize multiplied by 3 for a $30,000 cash win!  A total of 1,076,930 players across the nation won more than $10.5 million in prizes playing America’s favorite game.

There were 175,010 winning Powerball tickets with Power Play that multiplied their prize by 3 on Wednesday. The holders of these tickets were able to do that by purchasing the Power Play option for $1. With Power Play you multiply your Powerball winnings from 2-5 times, except for the jackpot. At the beginning of each drawing a wheel is spun to select that night’s multiplier.  

Players should carefully check their tickets after every draw. Even if there are no jackpot winners there are always tens of thousands of winners at other prize levels.

Players purchased $41,385,232 in Powerball and Power Play tickets between Sunday and Wednesday night.

The lotteries sold $2.5 billion in Powerball tickets in fiscal year 2007. That translates into over $725 million for worthwhile state projects.

Powerball is now played in 29 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
