Independence Day became payday for one lucky Mississippi Lottery player who won $50,000 on a Powerball® ticket in the Monday, July 4, drawing.
The player matched four out of five white balls and the Powerball. The winning Powerball numbers from Monday night’s drawing were: 15-16-24-31-56 with a Powerball of 4 and a Power Play of 2. The player did not purchase the Power Play. For an additional dollar, the player could have doubled the $50,000 prize for a total of $100,000.
The player purchased the winning ticket from Bluesky Store #637 on I-55 North at Northside Drive in Jackson.
Monday night’s big win follows other notable wins this week for Mississippi Lottery players.
