DE Powerball winner shares with two other states
Florida has its second Powerball winner in a week, but this one will split a much smaller jackpot with winners in Louisiana and Delaware.
Each winner will get a third of the estimated $50 million jackpot. A week ago, a ticket bought in Zephyrhills, Fla., won $590 million over 20 years or a cash prize estimated at $376.9 million.
Lottery officials in Louisiana and Florida said Saturday's winning tickets were bought in New Orleans and Tampa. Delaware's lottery website did not say where that state's winner was bought.
The cash value of Saturday's prize was not immediately available.
The jackpot for Wednesday's drawing drops to an estimated $40 million, or $24.9 million cash.
