Another $250,000 Mega Millions Winner for Kootenai County!

KHQ.COM - Call it Lucky Town, Idaho! Once again, an Idaho Lottery retailer along the western edge of Kootenai County in the community of Post Falls has sold a Mega Millions ticket worth $250,000. 

The latest one came from last night's draw. The winning numbers were 11, 21, 44, 48, 49 and the Megaball was 23. The Idaho Lottery has confirmed this winning ticket matched the first five numbers, but not the Megaball itself and is worth $250,000.

"This is a remarkable run of good luck for northern Idaho," said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. "We are encouraging everyone who has played Mega Millions in the Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls area to check their tickets carefully for winners.

Too often we've seen players not match the Megaball and think they do not have a winner, when in fact the ticket matched every other number and is worth a quarter-of-a-million dollars."

In the past year, Idaho has had eight Mega Millions winners of $250,000 or higher with six of those, including last January's jackpot winner, coming from the greater Coeur d'Alene area. Three of those six winning tickets have been sold in Post Falls.

The winner has 180 days to come forward to claim their winnings. The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday night is an estimated $14 million. The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night is an estimated $47 million.

"Winning creates a lot of excitement and we remind everyone who plays, to play what you can afford, don't go overboard. Please play responsibly," added Anderson.
