Powerball fever in Louisiana has been quite high with dreams of beach condos and luxury cars. Those dreams are over, for now. But someone in California will be able to go on quite a shopping spree. There is one winning ticket for the Monday night Powerball drawing and it is worth $699.8 million dollars. This is the 6th largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
The winning ticket was sold at an Albertsons supermarket in Morro Bay, California, according to the state's lottery website.
Here are the winning numbers from the October 4 drawing:
12-22-54-66-69 and the Powerball was 15.
The jackpot was expected to be $685 million, but sales were so brisk the prize climbed to nearly $700 million. The onetime cash payout is $495 million.
Six other tickets matched matched all five white balls and are worth $1 million. Those were sold in Arizona, Florida, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Virginia.
Here’s a list of the top 20 prizes from the multistate games: Powerball and Mega Millions:
Best Burgers in Shreveport-Bossier
Gullo's Fresh Produce via Facebook
Gullo's Fresh Produce
If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times. Gullo's Fresh Produce in Shreveport has THE best burger money can buy in the Ark-La-Tex. This is completely my opinion, and if I'm craving a burger, this is where you can find me.
Papa & Company via Facebook
Papa & Company
You didn't think we could make a list of the best burgers in town and not include Papa & Company, did you? Many Shreveporters claim Papa & Company has the best burger in town, and if you've tasted this delicious burger, you'll know why so many feel that way.
Flying Burger and Seafood via Facebook
There has been a lot of hype surrounding this burger as of late. The restaurant has only been open on Airline Drive in Bossier City for a little over a year, but that hasn't stopped this burger from quickly become a top-tier burger in the SBC.
Superior Grill via Facebook
Superior Grill is a beloved restauraunt in Shreveport that has stood the test of time. While we all love Superior for their margaritas and delicious high-end Mexican cuisine, burger-lovers in Shreveport-Bossier know their burger is top-notch and deserves more recognition.
Rollin' in the Dough via Facebook
Rollin' in the Dough
I'll make this very simple. You've never met anyone that has ate a burger from Rollin' in the Dough and didn't love it. That person doesn't exist. These burgers are awfully hard to beat, and we're lucky to have them in Shreveport-Bossier.
Griff's via Facebook
I'll never forget the very first time I ate a Griff's Burger. I was a kid and my grandma claimed it was the best in town. This burger is unbelievably delicious and will always be one of Shreveport-Bossier's top burgers.
Maxwell's Market via Facebook
During the COVID-19 pandemic, my co-workers and I went on a burger tour. I was shocked that Maxwell's Market was put on our to-do list because I had no clue they served burgers. Not only do they serve burgers, but their double cheeseburger was one of the best I've ever had in my entire life.
Patrick Netherton via Facebook
This is not your every day burger. In fact, it's only available around lunchtime on Fridays. It's the most exclusive burger in town, and if you haven't tried it yet, you are missing out in a major way.
Ki' Mexico via Facebook
Ki' Mexico, much like Superior, isn't necessarily known for their delicious burgers. I think that should change. The burger you'll find at Ki' Mexico is as delicious as it is unique. Certainly one of the best in town.
Twisted Root via Facebook
While the burger found at Ki' Mexico is unique, the burgers at Twisted Root take uniqueness to the next level. With burgers made from exotic meat such as elk, ostrich, and camel, you can't find burgers like this anywhere else in the SBC.
Patty Shack via Facebook
This is the one burger on my list that I haven't actually tried yet. However, when I shared my top-ten list with co-workers, many of them said I can't have a burger list without Patty Shack. Now, I'm heading there for lunch and I'm pumped to try a new burger!
