Shreveport Has $50,000 Powerball Winner; Was it You?
Saturday night's drawing in the Powerball lottery was worth $150,000,000! And nobody won it, but Shreveport can boast that one of our own was able to cash in to the tune of $50,000!
The lucky ticket holder, purchased that Powerball ticket at the Circle K at 8173 Walker Road in Shreveport. And it's worth $50,000 for matching four of the five regular numbers and the Powerball.
Now, being a cup half full kind of guy, this would be really awesome news. I mean, $50,000 to blow on a new bass boat or a new truck, would be an incredible dream come true.
But for the cup half empty type, this could be nearly devastating. They were only one number away from $150,000,000. One stinking number. They were this close. Oh well, I digress.
Congratulations and relish the fact that Wednesday's Powerball drawing will be worth an estimated $160,000,000.
