$200,000 Powerball ticket sold in South Dakota

For Immediate Release: 4/12/2007

(Pierre) - A lucky Powerball ticket sold in Aberdeen is worth $200,000 following last night’s drawing.  The ticket was one of nine in the nation that matched the five white balls, but not the red Powerball to win the game’s second prize.

The winning Powerball numbers for the April 11, 2007 drawing were:  06, 15, 38, 42, 51, and the Powerball was 18.  The Power Play multiplier was 2.

Lottery director Norm Lingle said the ticket holder should sign the back of the ticket immediately, put it in a safe place, and contact the Lottery office in Sioux Falls (605-367-5840) or Pierre (605-773-5770) to make arrangements to validate the ticket and claim the prize.

The winner has 180 days to claim the prize.

Because no one won the jackpot Wednesday night, the estimated jackpot for the next Powerball drawing on Saturday is $27 million.

Powerball is played in 29 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  The odds of winning the jackpot are 1:146,107,962. The odds of winning the game’s second prize are 1:3,563,609.
