The really big money, the $758.7 million Powerball jackpot was won by a single ticket holder in Massachusettes in Wednesday’s multistate lottery drawing. Closer to home a single ticket holder who decided to play the game is $2 million richer.

Lottery officials say a ticket sold at Tiger Mart in Lake Arthur matched all five of the white balls in the August 23 drawing. The ticket purchaser exercised the Powerplay option of the game so that means the total prize value of the ticket is $2 million.

There were several other big money winners that came from Louisiana in Wednesday’s drawing including a $200,000 ticket sold in in Hammond, a $200,000 ticket sold in Jonesboro, and  $50,000 tickets sold in Covington, Jonesboro, and Kentwood.

The winning numbers for August 23, 2017:

06-07-16-23-26 PB 04

The next Powerball drawing on Saturday will be worth $40 million.
