COLUMBIA, SC (November 30, 2020) – This week, lottery players will have a chance at two jackpots worth over $200 million each. Tomorrow night Mega Millions® draws for $229 million. Then the next night Powerball® draws for $231 million.

In last weekend’s post-Thanksgiving jackpot drawings, three players in South Carolina came within one number of winning it all.

A grocery shopper at the Harris Teeter LLC #82 on Hwy. 160 W. in Fort Mill won $50,000 playing Powerball®. The ticket holder matched four white ball numbers and the red Powerball® number drawn on Saturday, November 28 (8, 12, 18, 44, 51 and PB: 18). The odds of winning $50,000 playing Powerball® are 1 in 913,129.

A $20,000 Mega Millions® ticket was sold in Newberry at the TJ Xpress #101 on Wilson Rd., and a $10,000 Mega Millions® ticket was purchased in Myrtle Beach at the Tiger Mart #15 on N. Kings Hwy. Both ticket holders matched four white ball numbers and the gold Megaball® number on Friday, November 27 (4, 10, 27, 35, 58 and MB: 10). The odds of winning $10,000 playing Mega Millions® are 1 in 931,001. Spending the extra $1 for Megaplier® doubled the Newberry player’s prize.

Interested in taking a chance on tomorrow night’s Mega Millions® jackpot? Tickets are $2 and need to be purchased by 10 p.m. for the 11 p.m. drawing. The winner must overcome odds of 1 in about 303 million and can choose between a cash option of $177 million or an annuity worth $229 million.

For $2, players can try their luck on Wednesday’s $231 million Powerball® jackpot with a cash value of $180 million. The odds of winning it are long at about 1 in 293 million. Tickets must be purchased by 9:59 Wednesday night.

The Lottery reminds players it only takes one ticket to win. Please, play responsibly.

Good luck, South Carolina.
