One Idaho Powerball lottery ticket buyer in Boise has won $1 million, Idaho Lottery officials say, and two other tickets, sold in Caldwell and Meridian, won $10,000 each. That's among the nearly 57,000 winning tickets sold in the state for the big $587.5 million Powerball jackpot, the AP reports; the two big winners who will split the jackpot are from Arizona and Missouri. Winners have 180 days to claim their prizes.
Winning $1 million required matching the first five numbers in the drawing; winning $10,000 required matching four of the first five and the Powerball number.
