Donaldsonville Man Claims $1 Million Powerball Prize
Bryon Davis visited Louisiana Lottery headquarters in Baton Rouge on Tuesday to claim his $1 million prize from the Jan. 19 Powerball drawing.
The 50-year-old Donaldsonville resident's Quick Pick ticket matched all five whiteball numbers but missed the Powerball number. Davis received $700,000 after federal and state taxes were withheld.
He purchased his ticket at Bellina's Grocery on St. Patrick Street in Donaldsonville. The store will receive a selling bonus of $10,000, which is one percent of the prize.
Ticket purchasers must be at least 21 years of age. Draw-style game tickets must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing. Anyone who may have a gambling problem or friends and family of anyone with a gambling problem should call toll free 1-877-770-7867 for help.
For security purposes, the Lottery strongly encourages players to sign the back of their tickets immediately after purchasing.
