COLUMBIA, S.C. — Somebody in Columbia won a million dollars in the latest Powerball drawing.
The South Carolina Education Lottery confirmed Monday the $1 million ticket was purchased from the Two Notch Market at 7501 Two Notch Road in Columbia for Saturday night’s drawing.
The Columbia ticket matched all five white ball numbers drawn. Had the ticket holder purchased PowerPlay for an extra $1, the $1 million prize would have increased to $2 million.
In case you need them (maybe your the ticket holder?) the Powerball numbers for Saturday, March 23: 24, 25, 52, 60, 66, and Powerball 5.
No one, however, won the big jackpot. That means the estimated jackpot for Wednesday night’s drawing will be $750 million.
More than to 53,000 players in South Carolina hold tickets for prizes from $4 up to $1 million. Of these, more than 21,000 players purchased PowerPlay® to see their non-jackpot winnings, excluding the Match 5 prize, multiplied by three. Players have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes. For complete information on claiming prizes, visit sceducationlottery.com.
The odds of winning $1 million are 1 in 11,688,054. The odds of a 3X multiplier being selected are 1 in 3.23, when the jackpot is over $150 million.
South Carolinians interested in taking a chance on the third-largest Powerball® jackpot must purchase tickets by 9:59 p.m. for Wednesday’s 10:59 p.m. drawing. You can watch that drawing live on WLTX.
