Terrytown Resident Claims $200,000 Powerball Prize
Roland Falcon of Terrytown claimed a $200,000 prize at the Louisiana Lottery Corporation's New Orleans office as a result of a winning Powerball ticket from the Feb. 13 drawing. Falcon said he and a group of eight co-workers from Neff Rental in Geismar played together and will share the winnings.
"It feels great to win!" said Falcon, age 36. "We're already in for Saturday's drawing."
Falcon's ticket matched all five white balls drawn but not the red Powerball to win his prize.
He purchased his winning ticket at Driftwood Spur on W. Esplanade Avenue in Kenner. The retailer will receive a one-time bonus of $2,000 for selling Falcon the winning ticket.
The winning numbers for the Feb. 13 Powerball drawing were 13-19-32-38-51 and the Powerball number was 30.
