William Hennings of Yadkinville took a chance on a Quick Pick ticket in Saturday’s Powerball drawing and won a $100,000 prize.

His $2 ticket matched numbers on four of the white balls and the Powerball in the April 3 drawing. The odds of matching four white balls and the Powerball in a drawing are 1 in 913,129.

Hennings purchased his winning ticket from the Cutter Mart on Speer Bridge Road in Yadkinville.

He claimed his prize Wednesday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh and took home $70,751 after required federal and state tax withholdings.

No one won Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot. The jackpot climbs to $53 million as an annuity or $37.5 million cash for Saturday’s drawing. The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.

Players can buy Powerball tickets through Online Play on the lottery’s website, www.nclottery.com, with the NC Lottery Official Mobile App, or at any lottery retail location.
