Bossier City Resident Claims $200,000 Powerball Prize from Aug. 16 Drawing
Roy Burgess of Bossier City claimed a $200,000 match-5 Powerball prize at Louisiana Lottery Corporation's Shreveport regional office from the Aug. 16 Powerball drawing.
"I stopped to get gas and the cashier said someone in the area had won a large Powerball prize, so she printed the winning numbers for me," said Burgess. "Once I looked at them, I told her, 'I think that's me!'"
His Powerball ticket, which was purchased at Dixie Mart #16 in Bossier City, matched all five of the white ball numbers, but missed the red Powerball to win $200,000.
The winning numbers for the Aug. 16 drawing were 05-34-40-43-52 and the Powerball number was 20.
