Bastrop Woman Cheers $10,000 Powerball Win
Just before leaving Louisiana Lottery's Monroe office, Martha Anderson looked over her shoulder and let out a loud cheer. The Bastrop resident couldn't contain her excitement about claiming a $10,000 Powerball prize from the Jan. 8 drawing.
Anderson's ticket matched four of the five white ball numbers drawn and the red Powerball number to win $10,000. The winning numbers for the Jan. 8 Powerball drawing were 06-07-26-33-52 and the Powerball number was 24.
Anderson, age 45, purchased her winning ticket from Kangaroo Express #3452 on East Madison in Bastrop. She plans to use her winnings to pay bills.
