Utah players come north to Idaho for lottery cash

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - For lottery riches, a group of Utah residents went north to Idaho.
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - For lottery riches, a group of Utah residents went north to Idaho.

Michael Baca of Ogden and a group of his  co-workers were the winners of last week's $1 million Powerball ticket after matching
five out of six numbers.

There was no jackpot winner.

Utah doesn't have a state lottery, so many of its residents go north to  Idaho, spending millions on its lottery annually.

Baca's group's win marked the third time in six months that Utah lottery players  have won $1 million on a Powerball ticket sold in southeastern Idaho.

Baca and his group have won before in Idaho, too, collecting $50,000 after matching four Powerball numbers in November 2010.

Baca hopes a third time will be a charm and he'll win the jackpot someday.
