BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Lottery officials say a lottery ticket sold in eastern Idaho is worth $2 million. Idaho Lottery's Director says the ticket sold in Fremont County matched the first five numbers of Saturday night's draw and had the PowerPlay option. Because the ticket buyer spent an extra $1 for the PowerPlay option, the ticket matching the five numbers is worth $2 million rather than just $1 million. There was no jackpot winner. Officials estimate the jackpot for tomorrow's draw will be $120 million.
