Two Mississippi Lottery players who had dreams of winning the 2 billion dollar jackpot didn’t come away empty-handed.
Despite not winning the largest jackpot in lottery history, two players discovered that they won $50,000 in Monday’s drawing.
The players won by matching four out of five white balls and the Powerball.
One winning ticket was purchased from Keith’s Superstore #112 on Highway 90 in Gautier.
The second winning ticket was purchased from Bluesky #730 on Battleground Drive in Iuka.
Neither player selected the Powerplay option, which was 2. Doing so would have doubled their wins to $100,000.
One ticket sold in California hit all the Powerball® numbers, claiming the $2.04 billion jackpot. The jackpot climbed beyond its earlier estimate to $2.04 billion at the time of the drawing—the world’s largest lottery prize.
The winning numbers were 10-33-41-47-56 with a Powerball of 10. The Power Play multiplier was 2X.
