COLUMBIA, SC (December 2, 2008) – A Columbia woman, originally from England, is the Lottery’s most recent $200,000 Powerball® prize winner, matching all five white ball numbers! The lucky player doesn’t want to reveal her name, but she did tell lottery staff she plays Powerball® each Wednesday and Saturday.
The winner purchased her ticket at Kroger #448 on Two Notch Road in Columbia. She hopes to use some of her prize to visit family in England and help her college-bound son with his expenses.
The winning white ball numbers in the Saturday, November 29, drawing were 5, 33, 36, 39 and 55. The red Powerball® number was 21, and the PowerPlay® multiplier was 4.
Since inception in 2002, the General Assembly has appropriated more than $2 billion for educational purposes through fiscal year 2009. In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2008, more than 97 cents of every dollar spent by players on the South Carolina Education Lottery is returned to the state in the form of contributions to education, prizes, retailer commissions, and payment to contractors for goods and services.
