Someone who bought a Powerball ticket at a Clay County grocery store for Monday’s drawing won a $1 million prize, the largest prize won nationally in the drawing.

The lucky $1 million winner purchased the ticket at the Ingles on U.S. 64 East in Hayesville. The $2 ticket matched the numbers on all five white balls to win $1 million. The odds of matching numbers on all five white balls are 1 in 11.6 million. The winner has 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize.

Another lucky winner from Winston-Salem holds a ticket worth $100,000 after buying a $3 Power Play ticket using Online Play on the lottery’s website. The ticket matched four white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000, and the prize doubled to $100,000 after the 2X multiplier hit.

Since no one won Monday’s jackpot, the Powerball jackpot climbs to $66 million as an annuity prize or $38.3 million cash for Wednesday’s drawing. The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.

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

When the Powerplay is x10 and someone has 5 numbers will they win 10 million?????NC Lottery
Hi, Darlene! The Power Play multiplier would be 2X for matching 5 numbers - regardless of the multiplier drawn, the prize would be $2 million. You can view the prize structure and odds chart on our website here: https://nclottery.com/powerball-how-to-play. Hope this helps!
