BATON ROUGE (AP) — A $200,000 Powerball ticket was sold in LaPlace for Saturday night’s game, while a ticket matching all the Easy 5 numbers was purchased in Kenner and captured that game’s $192,073 jackpot, state lottery officials said.

The jackpots for Powerball and Louisiana Lotto went untouched. Powerball will have an estimated $230 million top prize for Wednesday night’s drawing, while Lotto’s jackpot grows to an estimated $875,000.

The $200,000 Powerball ticket matched the first five numbers, but missed the Powerball. There also were three $10,000 Powerball tickets sold in Louisiana. Those tickets matched four of five numbers, plus the Powerball.
