BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Baton Rouge woman has become Louisiana’s latest millionaire.

Tung Le claimed a $1 million Match-5 Powerball prize from the Oct. 29 drawing.

The 38-year-old’s winning ticket matched five of six numbers to win $1,000,004, which she claimed Monday. The winning numbers were: 19, 20, 21, 42, 48 and Powerball 23.

Lottery officials, in a news release Thursday, said Le received $700,002 after state and federal taxes were withheld.

Le says she plans to use some of the money to pay off her mortgage.

The winning ticket was sold at Hi Nabor Supermarket in Baton Rouge. The store received a one-time selling bonus of $10,000, which is 1 percent of the prize.
