December 2, 2022 Posted by NC Lottery at 3:23 PM

Charlie Williams of Greensboro tried his luck on a $3 Powerball ticket and won a $150,000 prize.

Williams bought his lucky Power Play ticket from Kwik Trip on East Wendover Avenue in Greensboro. He matched numbers on four white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000 in the Nov. 5 drawing. The prize tripled to $150,000 when the 3X Power Play multiplier hit.

Williams claimed his prize Friday at lottery headquarters and, after required federal and state tax withholdings, took home $106,516.

Saturday’s Powerball drawing offers an $81 million jackpot, or $42.1 million in cash. The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.

Powerball is one of four lottery games in North Carolina where players have the option of buying their tickets at a retail location or with Online Play through the lottery’s website or with the NC Lottery Official Mobile App. The other games are Mega Millions, Lucky For Life, and Carolina Cash 5.

Congratulations on your big win! 18 dollars spent for 6 draws. Played the Xtra dollar, in hopes of winning anything. 6 draws and didn't win nothing, this guy spent 3 dollars on one ticket, and wins 150,000 dollars. Wow! What luck he has, me, no luck at all.
