Shreveport Resident Claims $600,000 Prize from Aug. 25 Powerball Drawing
Roy Mitchell of Shreveport claimed a $600,000 prize at the Louisiana Lottery Corporation's headquarters from the Aug. 25 Powerball drawing.
Mitchell's winning ticket matched all five white ball numbers drawn but missed the red Powerball number. When Mitchell purchased his ticket at Kroger Store #539 on Youree Drive in Shreveport, he added the Power Play option to his ticket for an additional $1. When the Power Play number "3" was selected during the drawing, his winnings were multiplied by three, bringing his total prize to $600,000.
Kroger Store #539 will receive a one-time bonus of $6,000, one percent of the prize, for selling Mitchell his winning ticket. The winning numbers for the August 25 Powerball drawing were 2-8-23-29-35 and the Powerball number was 19.
