The winning ticket, purchased from the Sunoco at 1083 Broad St., which is across the street from Mariachi’s and next to the Sumter Mall, for Saturday night’s drawing, matched all five white ball numbers drawn: 4, 6, 16, 30 and 56 with a Powerball of 18.
Because the ticket holder purchased PowerPlay for an extra $1, the $1 million prize was increased to $2 million, according to a news release from the South Carolina Education Lottery.
“No one’s come forward yet, but I hope they do,” said an employee at Sunco over the phone Monday morning.
He said the store sold a $200,000 ticket about two years ago and a ticket worth $1 million before that.
More than 9,800 players in South Carolina hold tickets for prizes from $4 to up to the $2 million jackpot prize for this round of Powerball. Of these, more than 4,400 players purchased PowerPlay to see their non-jackpot winnings, excluding the Match 5 prize, multiplied by two.
The odds of winning $1 million are one in 11,688,054. The odds of a two-times multiplier being selected are one in 1.79 when the estimated jackpot is $150 million or less.
The estimated jackpot for this Wednesday night’s drawing is $103 million.
Proceeds from every dollar spent by lottery players in South Carolina are returned to the state in the form of funding for education, prizes, retailer commissions and payment to contractors for goods and services.
Anyone with a winning ticket has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes. For complete information on claiming prizes, visit www.sceducationlottery.com.
