Second Consecutive Winning Powerball Ticket Sold In Indiana

PowerballPowerball: Second Consecutive Winning Powerball Ticket Sold In Indiana

A winning Powerball ticket has been sold in Indiana for the second straight drawing.

The Multi-State Lottery Association said one ticket was sold matching all five numbers and the Powerball in Wednesday's drawing, and it was sold in Indiana.  That ticket wins the $10 million jackpot.

The winning ticket was sold at a Tobacco Road Marathon station at 1541 W. Thompson Road on Indianapolis' southwest side.

The numbers drawn were: 8, 19, 22, 34, 53 and Powerball 29.

Earlier Wednesday, a Daviess County woman came forward to claim her half of last Saturday's $190 million Powerball prize.

She had one of two winning tickets sold for last Saturday's game.

This marks the first time Indiana has had a back-to-back winner.

The manager said it was surprising that the winning ticket was sold in his store because Wednesday's sales were half of what they normally were.  He said the store only sold $182 worth of tickets because customers doubted two winning consecutive tickets would be sold in Indiana.

But the store's location leaves a good chance that the winner will not be from Indiana.

"We have a lot of of truckers that come in because there's three truck stops here.  So, they just stop here, get their Big Macs, and come in here and get their tickets, and a lot of them are from out of state, so there's a chance the winner might be from California somewhere and might not know it," store manager, Tim Leonard, said.

This marks the 30th time a winning ticket has been sold in Indiana since the state began participating in Powerball in 1992.

Never mind back-to-back Indiana winners-it's probably the first time the same MUSL member sold a winning PB jackpot ticket in consecutive draws.

    I guess that m

    Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

      "Hot Lotto" has yet to produce wins in consecutive draws.
