COLUMBIA, SC (November 6, 2007) – The Powerball® jackpot climbed to an estimated $71 million for Wednesday night's draw as the grand prize was not hit in the Saturday evening draw. One ticket sold in South Carolina matched all five white balls drawn in the Saturday, November 3 drawing resulting in a $200,000 prize!
The winner claimed his prize at the Fort Mill Claims Center but wished to remain anonymous. The man, from Charlotte, North Carolina, crossed the border to play the lottery in the Palmetto State. He purchased his lucky ticket at Petro Express #3943, 249 Carowinds Boulevard, in Fort Mill.
The white ball numbers drawn were 1, 31, 38, 40 and 53. The red Powerball® number was 42 and the PowerPlay® was 2.
The jackpot for the Wednesday, November 7th drawing is $71 million with a cash option of $34.5 million.
Powerball® is played in 29 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Since its inception in 2002, the support the South Carolina Education Lottery has received from players and retailers is responsible for the General Assembly appropriating more than $1.74 billion for educational purposes through fiscal year 2008.
