Powerball ticket sold at Metairie convenience store wins $150K
NEW ORLEANS — Someone had a really good weekend.
A ticket sold at Paul’s Stop-N-Shop on Veterans Memorial Boulevard in Metairie won $150,000 in Saturday’s Powerball drawing.
The ticket matched four of five white ball numbers, plus the Powerball and had Power Play included.
Only one person won the $559.7 million jackpot. That winning ticket was sold at a Reeds Ferry Market in Merrimack, New Hampshire, according to Maura McCann, a spokeswoman with the New Hampshire Lottery. The store will get a $75,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The winning numbers were 12, 29, 30, 33 and 61, with a Powerball number of 26.
