Check your Powerball tickets!
BATON ROUGE - People across the capital region checked tickets Wednesday night as the numbers for the third-largest Powerball jackpot were announced.
The numbers pulled were: 11-13-25-39-54 and the Powerball was 19. The jackpot was more than half-a-billion dollars.
Fourteen million tickets were sold in Louisiana.
"I have these numbers that I always pick when I play," a hopeful winner told WBRZ Wednesday night.
Some said, should they win, they would share the money with friends and family members. Others said they'd treat themselves to thinks like a yacht.
