The winning tickets were sold in Chino Hills, California; Munford, Tennessee; and in Melbourne Beach, Florida, according to state lottery officials. The winning numbers were 08, 27, 34, 04 and 19, and the Powerball was 10.

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.
