Someone in Fargo holds the ticket to $100,000 in Powerball winnings


Someone in Fargo is $100,000 richer today thanks to a winning ticket in the Powerball drawing Wednesday night. 

The unidentified person matched four white balls and the Powerball for a total of $50,000. 

However, because the person also bought a Power Play on the ticket, the multiplier picked Wednesday night was 2, meaning the $50,000 turned into $100,000. 

The ticket was sold at the Holiday Station store on Brandt Drive in Fargo. 

So far, no one has contacted the North Dakota Lottery office to claim the prize. 

Winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing to turn in their winning tickets. 

“North Dakota Powerball players have had some pretty good luck the past few months,” said North Dakota Lottery director Randy Miller. “This is the seventh Powerball winner of $50,000 or more in North Dakota since July.”

In the Tuesday Mega Millions with Megaplier drawing, 12 North Dakotans won $1,500 each. Three winning tickets were sold in Bismarck, two in Williston and one each in Jamestown, Richardton, Rolla, Leeds, Dickinson, Hettinger and Velva.

Meanwhile, the Powerball jackpot for the Saturday, October 27th drawing stands at $750 million — no one picked all the winning numbers in the Wednesday night drawing.
