Winning $500K Powerball ticket purchased in McComb

One lucky Mississippi ticketholder is now the winner of a $500,000 prize after matching four of five white balls in Saturday’s Powerball drawing.

The ticket was purchased from Broadway Mart on South Broadway in McComb, with the original prize totaling $50,000 before the player spent an extra dollar for the Powerplay multiplier. Saturday’s drawing multiplied the sum by 10, increasing the player’s initial win by $450,000.

The winning Powerball numbers from Saturday night’s drawing were 19, 24, 35, 43, 62 with a Power Ball of 2.

“We love seeing a win like this,” said Mississippi Lottery Corporation (MLC) President Jeff Hewitt. “This is a great example of how choosing the multiplier can really increase a player’s winnings!”

In the meantime, the winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it in a secure location. The owner of the winning ticket has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize, which must be done at MLC headquarters in Flowood.
