$1 million Mega Millions prize won in N.C.

January 14, 2023 Posted by NC Lottery at 9:41 AM

The Friday the 13th Mega Millions drawing brought good luck to someone who purchased a ticket in Charlotte and won a $1 million prize.

The lucky winner purchased the ticket at the Kwick Mart on Albemarle Road in Charlotte. The $2 ticket matched the numbers on all five white balls to win the $1 million prize. The odds of matching numbers on all five white balls are 1 in 12.6 million.

The winner has 180 days from the drawing to claim the prize.

The $1 million prize in North Carolina became one of 14 won nationally as lottery players tried their luck at the second highest jackpot in the history of the game.

Two other tickets in North Carolina won a $10,000 prize. One was sold at the Food Lion on Capital Boulevard in Raleigh and the other at the Handy House on Arendell Street in Morehead City.

The $1.35 billion jackpot went to one lucky ticket sold in Maine. Mega Millions players have won jackpots on Friday the 13th seven times.

Tuesday’s Mega Millions jackpot resets to $20 million as an annuity prize or $10.7 million cash. Odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302.5 million.

You can play for a $404 million jackpot − $211.7 million cash − in Saturday’s Powerball drawing. The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.

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

Would be nice to have the numbers for the cash5 second chance drawing in numerical order???NC Lottery
Hey there, William! Thank you for the feedback - that's a great suggestion! You can also check your numbers using the search feature at the top of the page, if that makes it easier to locate your numbers!

I'm confused on out of all the tickets bought! That only ONE winner of a Billion was chosen. Congrats to whoever the lucky person was. From Maine. No one in NC will ever Win that amount of money. Change the Name. NC? Wow

How I see the numbers I picked. I saved them but they didn't save. But it took my money. NC Lottery
Hi Kineshia, you can find your previous ticket purchases in you account dropdown section under "Transaction History".

Hey LZ! I can't enter ANY of the $30 200x tickets, says something like Invalid Entry. I also can't enter the $5 Loteria anymore, same deal. Previously I could enter both. What's going on?!NC Lottery
Hi Tim, our development team has released an update that fixed this issue last night. 200X The Cash tickets should scan correctly now. Yours is the first mention I've seen about Loteria though. Can you let me know if those tickets are also still not scanning in correctly? Thanks!

Has anyone ever won by using this app? Just wondering if I should physically go to a store and purchase.NC Lottery
Hi Mark, lots of players have won big prizes with Online Play. Just today, two players won $100,000 Powerball prizes with tickets purchased online!

Hi William, thanks for letting us know. We have reported this issue to our development team to investigate. Please hang on to your tickets and try them again later. Our apologies for the inconvenience.**Update** The issue with scanning 200X The Cash tickets has been corrected. Those should scan in for entries and points now.

Wow! So much money going to one person. With all the numbers that was generated, seem like it could have been at least two more people to win it. Congratulations to the winner!
