There is good news all the way around for Powerball players.

First, the latest jackpot has not been won. So, when you play again on Saturday, March 16, the estimated grand prize will be $600 million.

Second, someone in Louisiana did score a nice win in last night's drawing to the tune of $50,000!

That winning ticket got four of five numbers right plus the Powerball number. (Ahhh, so close!) However, $50K is nothing to sneeze at.

The winning ticket did not have a Power Play added on so that's why they "just" won the $50,000. Had they had the addition, they could have won up to $500,000.

Where was the winning $50,000 ticket purchased?

The winning ticket was sold at Belle Chasse Self Serve located at 9654 Highway 23 in Belle Chasse, Louisiana.
