Youngsville Resident Claims $200,000 Powerball Prize
Irvin C. Hunt Sr. of Youngsville claimed $200,000 at the Louisiana Lottery Corporation's Lafayette office from the Nov. 21 Powerball drawing.
Hunt, age 79, matched all five white ball numbers to win his prize, which he said he plans to put into a savings account.
Hunt purchased his Powerball ticket at Saab's Corner Stop #3 on Highway 89 in Youngsville. The store will receive a one-time bonus of $2,000 for selling Hunt his winning ticket.
The winning numbers for the Nov. 21 drawing were 3-11-13-20-40 and the Powerball number was 20. Hunt's ticket was a "quick pick," meaning the Lottery's terminal randomly selected his numbers.
Persons must be at least 21 to purchase a Lottery ticket. Anyone who has a gambling problem or friends and family of anyone with a gambling problem are encouraged to call toll-free, 1-877-770-7867, for help.
