$10,000 Powerball ticket sold in Bluffton, lottery says

A ticket sold in Bluffton for Wednesday's Powerball drawing is worth $10,000, the Hoosier Lottery said today.

The ticket, which matched four of the first five numbers, but not the Powerball, was sold at Pak-A-Sak, 904 S. Main St., the lottery said in a statement.

The winning numbers were 1, 2, 7, 9 and 55, with Powerball 29.

The Bluffton ticket was one of four $10,000 winners in Indiana on Wednesday, the lottery said. Other winning tickets were sold in Yorktown, Elwood and Mishawaka.

A person playing in Hammond matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball, and holds a ticket worth $1 million, the lottery said.

It urged all the winners to sign the back of their tickets and to contact Hoosier Lottery customer service for instructions on claiming their prizes.

No one won the Powerball jackpot Wednesday night, which has jumped to an estimated $152 million for Saturday's drawing, the lottery said.
