The person bought a ticket that matched all five white ball numbers in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing, South Carolina Lottery officials said in a news release.
The $1 million ticket was purchased from the Stop N Shop at 1104 North Lake Dr., according to the release. The gas station/convenience store is near the intersection of North Lake and Old Cherokee Road, not far from a Walmart Supercenter and Publix Super Market.It had the winning numbers of 11, 33, 44, 59, 67 and a Powerball 8, officials said.
The odds of winning a $1 million jackpot are 1-in-11,688,054, according to the release.
The $1 million prize is the biggest payout from Wednesday’s drawing, but not the only winning Powerball ticket sold in South Carolina. Prizes from $4 to $50,000 were sold across the state, and there are nearly 17,000 winners.
The estimated jackpot for Saturday night’s Powerball drawing is $373 million, the largest so far in 2020, officials said. To vie for that prize, players in South Carolina must purchase tickets by 9:59 p.m. for the 10:59 p.m. drawing.While North Carolina law says the lottery can approve any game that another state lottery already offers, state legislators have been divided on the digital instant idea and could prohibit it if they’re unhappy with any commission plan. Still, the legislature this year directed the lottery commission to study the feasibility of expanding gambling to sports betting and steeplechases.
Social conservatives and other gambling opponents also are worried the digital instants look too much like illegal video sweepstakes games, which legislators and law enforcement have tried for years to root out of the state. Lottery officials take issue with any similarities. Current online sales require minimum-age verification and set limits on money transfers to ticket-purchase accounts.
