Powerball player in Bonner County wins a million bucks

Sun., July 15, 2012, 5:58 p.m.

Winning ticket not yet claimed

Except for unlucky No. 13, a Powerball ticket-buyer in Bonner County is only $1 million richer.

Idaho Powerball officials say a ticket purchased for Saturday’s $90 million draw won the five-number payout, for $1 million.

The ticket didn’t have the Powerball No. 13, however.

This was the second time in less than a month that an Idaho resident scored big bucks on the nationwide Powerball lottery. An earlier million-dollar ticket was sold in Meridian, Idaho for the June 12 draw.

Saturday’s winning numbers were 04, 16, 32, 37, 46.

Last night´s big winning ticket is the Idaho Lottery´s fourth $1,000,000 winning Powerball ticket since February.
