Powerball ticket worth $200,000 sold in Fargo; $200,000 prize from Jan. 9 drawing still unclaimedFARGO – Someone who bought a Powerball ticket at the Northport Hornbacher’s store in Fargo is $200,000 richer after Wednesday’s lottery drawing, and another $200,000 ticket sold here in January has yet to be claimed.
The winning ticket in Wednesday’s drawing matched all five white balls, but missed the red Powerball for the jackpot, North Dakota Lottery Director Randy Miller.
If the player had paid an extra $1 for the Power Play option, the ticket would have been worth $1 million.
The winner hadn’t claimed the prize as of 1 p.m. today, Miller said.
Meanwhile, another $200,000 winner who bought the ticket at the Fargo Stamart at 1340 34th St. S. has yet to claim the prize from the Jan. 9 drawing, he said.
Winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.
Wednesday’s drawing produced seven $200,000 winners and one $1 million winner who took the Power Play option, Miller said.
The jackpot for Saturday’s drawing is estimated at $120 million.
