Idaho gets 3rd $1 million Powerball winner in 3 weeks

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Lottery officials say a ticket sold in Bonneville County in southeastern Idaho has won $1 million in Wednesday's Powerball drawing. It is the third time in five drawings that a ticket sold in Idaho has won $1 million.

Idaho Lottery Director Jeff Anderson says the winning ticket matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball. On July 10, Audrey and David Eckert of Boise won $1 million while a Salt Lake City-area man, Mike Middlemiss, and his son, Chris, won a $1 million prize in the July 13 drawing.

I've never purchased a lottery ticket in my life. Perhaps, I should start.
How often do you buy Powerball tickets?
