No jackpot winners in Oregon, but seven $50K Powerball tickets sold in state

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Nobody from Oregon is getting a share of the $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot, but people in six Oregon cities bought tickets that won $50,000 prizes.

Seven $50,000 winning tickets were sold by lottery retailers in Coos Bay, Grants Pass, Veneta, Baker City, Salem and two in Portland for Wednesday's drawing.

The winning ticket from Baker City is actually a $100,000 prize, because the buyer added the power play multiplier option for an additional $1. The power play multiplier drawn Wednesday was two, doubling the prize.

Powerball sales in Oregon for Wednesday exceeded $6.3 million. There were more than 250,000 winning tickets sold in the state with prizes starting at $4. 

In Washington, there were two $1 million Powerball winners and both families - from Everett and Kirkland - have come forward to claim their prize.

Three $100,000 tickets were sold in Washington at stores in Spokane Valley, Tumwater and Prosser. Seven tickets worth $50,000 were purchased in the state in Point Roberts, Colville, Issaquah, Marysville, Seattle and two in Vancouver. 

The jackpot-winning tickets were sold in Florida, Tennessee and California. Nationwide, 89 people became millionaires in the drawing.

The overall odds of winning a Powerball prize are one in 24.9. Odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292,201,338. The next drawing is Saturday and the jackpot is now estimated to be $40 million.
