Are You Holding a Powerball® Ticket Worth 400,000?

COLUMBIA, SC (March 11, 2008) - The owners of two Powerball® tickets worth $400,000 have not come forward. One winning ticket was sold at Kangaroo Express #3140 in Little River and the other ticket was purchased at Scott’s Mini Mart in Cheraw.
Check your Powerball® tickets carefully. The winning white ball numbers from the Saturday, February 8, drawing were 17, 29, 31, 34, and 49. The red Powerball® was 16 and the PowerPlay® multiplier was 2. Both ticket holders wisely purchased PowerPlay® and increased their $200,000 prize to $400,000. PowerPlay® costs an additional $1 per play.
The winning tickets matched all five white ball numbers but missed the red Powerball® number and the chance to win the $200 million jackpot! The jackpot now stands at $230 million for Wednesday night’s drawing.
Winning Powerball® tickets must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing.
