$100,000 Powerball® Ticket Sold in the Small Town of Neeses
12/3/2015 11:54:23 AM

COLUMBIA, SC (December 3, 2015) – A Powerball® ticket sold in the small town of Neeses for last night’s drawing is worth $100,000. The ticket was purchased at the local Piggly Wiggly #116 store on the Savannah Hwy. in Orangeburg County.

And the winner, possibly one of Neeses’ 366 residents, stands to benefit from changes to the Powerball® game that occurred in October.

Instead of a $10,000 prize for matching four white ball numbers and the red Powerball® number with PowerPlay®, the prize jumped to $50,000. Because this player purchased PowerPlay® for an additional $1, their $50,000 prize doubled to $100,000 when a “2” multiplier was selected.

14, 18, 19, 32, and 64 Powerball®: 9

Check your tickets. More than to 10,000 players in South Carolina hold tickets for prizes from $4 up to $100,000. Of these, more than 4,400 players purchased PowerPlay® to see their non-jackpot winnings, excluding the Match 5 prize, multiplied by two. 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 matching four white ball numbers and the red Powerball® number are 1 in 913,129. The odds of a 2X multiplier being selected are 1 in 1.79.

The estimated jackpot for Saturday night’s drawing is $127 million.

Proceeds from every dollar spent by players on the South Carolina Education Lottery are returned to the state in the form of funding for education, prizes, retailer commissions, and payment to contractors for goods and services.
