COLUMBIA, SC (March 21, 2023) – Four Upstate coworkers are sharing a $100,000 Powerball® prize, and they are not done yet.
“We hope to get the big one,” a spokesperson for the group said.
They almost did, coming within one number of winning a $754 million jackpot on February 6. Their winning ticket was purchased at the Exxon at 1 N Woods Dr. in Fountain Inn.
The group has been playing Powerball® together for a year and buys their tickets for one drawing a week.
The group’s spokesperson bought the $100,000 winner and says she was “walking around in circles” when a coworker called to tell her they’d won. She says the entire group is joyous.
As for their plans, there’s talk of saving some, traveling and home improvement projects.
The odds of winning $50,000 by matching four white ball numbers and the red Powerball® number playing Powerball® are 1 in 913,129. The odds of a 2X multiplier being selected are 1 in 1.75 when the jackpot is more than $150 million.
For selling the claimed ticket, Exxon SC #1 in Fountain Inn received a commission of $1,000.
