Players score big wins in both games in Sept. 8 drawings
Our Wednesday night Powerball and Bonus Match 5 drawings were sure to put smiles on the faces of lucky players in both games. A Powerball player won a $100,000 third-tier prize and had another $8 in winnings on the ticket, while a Bonus Match 5 player scored a $50,000 top prize and had another $15 in prizes on the ticket.
