Summerville Couple Wins $1 MILLION on Christmas Day

COLUMBIA, SC (January 14, 2022) – A Summerville couple felt like a million bucks on Christmas Day, when their Powerball® ticket won them $1 million.

“My husband said, ‘We got one number, we got two, oh man, we’ve got five numbers,’” said the wife. “I cried.”

The husband purchased the Powerball® quick pick at the Refuel store on Brighton Park Blvd. in Summerville and says he went numb on Christmas night when he realized he was a millionaire.

He played because the jackpot had climbed to an advertised $400 million for the drawing on December 25 (27 - 29 - 45 - 55 - 58 and Powerball® 2). Had the ticket matched the red Powerball® number too, the jackpot would have been theirs.

The couple is happy with the result.

“We want to help our kids, us and charities,” they said.

The odds of winning $1 million are 1 in 11,688,054.

For selling the claimed ticket, Refuel #48 in Summerville received a commission of $10,000.

The estimated Powerball® jackpot for Saturday night’s drawing is $48 million.
