A Powerball Ticket Sold in Maine Won $150K on Wednesday
It wasn't a $754 million jackpot, but someone bought a ticket in Maine that is worth $150,000 so you might want to check your tickets. The Maine State Lottery announced that a ticket was sold at the Pine Tree Country Store in Kittery.
To win $150,000, you must match 4 numbers and the Powerball with a 3x multiplier. Someone did just that, but has yet to come forward. The winning numbers in Wednesdays drawing were 16-20-37-44-62 and the Powerball was 12.
The odds of winning the jackpot are approximately 1 in 292 million. However, the odds of getting four numbers plus the Powerball as this person did are slightly better at 1 in 913,000.
Not only did the person who bought the ticket win cash, but Pine Tree Country Store will receive a commission for selling the winning ticket.
