Barbara Goodman of Washington is celebrating after she bought a Powerball ticket and won $150,000.
Goodman bought the $3 Power Play ticket for the March 30 drawing at the Speedway on John Small Avenue in Washington.
She claimed the prize Thursday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required state and federal tax withholdings, she took home $106,126.
The ticket matched numbers on four of the white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000. Because she added the $1 Power Play feature, the prize tripled to $150,000 when the 3X multiplier was drawn. The ticket beat odds of one in 913,129.
The jackpot for Saturday’s Powerball drawing is $101 million or $62.7 million cash.
Ticket sales from draw games like Powerball make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $650 million a year for the state. For details on how $2.9 million in lottery funds made a difference in Beaufort County last year, click on the “Impact” section of the lottery’s website.
