INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 14, 2016) – Powerball players in Indiana should check their tickets carefully because there were 18 notable winners in the Hoosier state in the historic $1.5 billion drawing.
Three states — California, Florida and Tennessee — sold winning tickets for the monster $1.58 billion Powerball lottery, according to California lottery spokesman Russ Lopez,
Six numbers — 08, 27, 34, 04, 19 — and Powerball 10 were drawn Wednesday night in the historic lottery event.
The three winners will split the colossal jackpot resulting in $528.8 million prize for each, according to officials.
A ticket worth $1 million was sold in Terre Haute. That ticket matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball number.
In Indiana, 15 tickets are worth $50,000. Those tickets matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball number and were sold in the cities of Jasper, Madison, Corydon, Seymour, Lapel, Fort Wayne (two tickets), Batesville, Indianapolis, South Bend (two tickets), Richmond, Terre Haute, Danville and Hobart.
Two additional tickets, sold in West Lafayette and Zionsville, are worth $100,000. Those tickets matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball number and included the Power Play which doubled the standard $50,000 prize.
The winning ticketholders should sign the back and contact Hoosier Lottery customer service for claim instructions. The 24-hour toll free number is 1-800-955-6886. Prizes of $50,000 or more must be claimed at Hoosier Lottery headquarters in Indianapolis.
The Hoosier Lottery thanks the more than 4,500 Hoosier Lottery retailers around the state for their hard work and commitment. Without them, the success of this record-setting jackpot would not be possible.
