WHO: Someone’s holding a Powerball® ticket worth a cool $1 million! Is it you? The ticket was sold at Miller Produce & Farm in Fort Mill.

WHAT: The lucky ticket matched all five white ball numbers drawn in the Saturday,
January 24, 2009 drawing, but missed the red Powerball® number. The winning white ball numbers were 6, 20, 25, 37 and 42. The red Powerball® was 25 and the PowerPlay® multiplier selected was 2. The Powerball® jackpot was $25 million.

The fortunate player wisely purchased the PowerPlay® multiplier option, which resulted in the $1 million prize. That’s the way the new Powerball® works by turning any match 5 white ball win into a 5X multiplier when PowerPlay® is purchased pushing the prize up to $1 million!

The winning ticket can be claimed at a South Carolina Education Lottery Claims Center, located in Columbia, Greenville and Mt. Pleasant.

The next Powerball® drawing will be held Wednesday night at 10:59. The estimated jackpot is $30 million.


Since the Lottery’s 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.
