Someone who played Powerball in New Mexico last night is holding a ticket worth $206,900,000.
Whether that is one person or a lottery pool is unknown at this time, but sometime in the next few days, we’ll likely find out who won.
The winning numbers were 13,24,29,40,52. The Power ball was 29.
Eighteen players matched five white balls (but not the Power ball): one from Arizona, one from Colorado, one from Connecticut, one from Idaho, one from Indiana, one from Iowa, one from Kentucky, one from Louisiana, one from Missouri, three from North Carolina, one from New Mexico, four from Pennsylvania and one from Tennessee.
The Indiana and two Pennsylvania ticket holders Power Played the bet (the multiplier was 4) and won $800,000 per ticket. The other 15 players won $200,000 each.
Other relevant numbers: there were a total of 1,192,532 winning tickets. The total prize value (counting all nine levels of winning) was $14,196,973.
Fifty eight tickets matched four white balls and the power ball. They each won $10,000.
Thirteen ticket holders matched four white balls and Power Played the bet. Each of those ticket holders won $40,000.
To all of you winners out there, congratulations.
[Confession I just matched the 13 and the 52. Oh, well]
