Powerball ticket purchased in Fargo worth $200,000

A person who purchased a Powerball ticket in Fargo for Wednesday’s drawing matched five numbers, earning a $200,000 prize, according the a news release issued by the North Dakota Attorney General’s Office.

The winning ticket was sold at Stop ‘N’ Go, 4301 13th Ave. S., and matched five numbers. The ticket didn’t match the Powerball in the drawing, which carried an estimated $120 million prize for a ticket with all six matching numbers.

The winning numbers were 3, 11, 13, 20, 40 and the Powerball number was 20.

The winning ticket in Fargo was purchased without the Power Play option. If the player had purchased the Power Play option, the $200,000 prize would have been multiplied by 2, making the prize worth $400,000.

The winning ticket still has not been claimed, the news release said.

The Lottery recommends that players sign the back of tickets before claiming the ticket or presenting it to a retailer to scan for winning numbers.

“Unless you sign a ticket, the person who has custody of the ticket can claim the prize,” said Lottery Director Chuck Keller. “To protect yourself, sign the back of your tickets when you buy them.” Players have 180 days to claim a cash prize.

For Saturday’s draw, the estimated Powerball Jackpot has climbed to $137 million.
