Post Register

BOISE -- A Powerball lottery ticket sold Wednesday night in Bonneville County is a $1 million winner.

The Idaho Lottery confirmed that at least one winning ticket matched all five of the first numbers from Wednesday's $167.4 million Powerball draw and is worth $1 million. The winning numbers were 09, 29, 40, 44, 54, and the Powerball was 07.

With no jackpot winner, the estimated jackpot for Saturday night is $196 million.

The winning ticket was the third $1 million Powerball ticket sold in Idaho within three weeks. Wednesday's million-dollar winner has 180 days to claim his or her prize at Idaho Lottery headquarters.

On March 6, 2010, a $1 million winning Powerball ticket was sold at Huskey's in Irwin. It went unclaimed after 180 days, and the $1 million was added to the Idaho Lottery's unclaimed prizes fund.
