For two nights in a row, someone trying their luck at big jackpots in the Mega Millions and Powerball drawings won $1 million prize.

The first big win occurred Friday night when a $2 ticket purchased at Sumner Food Mart and Hardware on Old Randleman Road in Greensboro matched the numbers on all five white balls for $1 million prize.

North Carolina became one of three states with a $1 million winning ticket in Friday’s drawing. Mega Millions players in New York and South Carolina won the other two $1 million prizes.

The second happened Saturday when a $2 Powerball ticket, bought at Duck Thru Food on U.S. 64 East in Columbia, won the largest prize nationally in the drawing.

Monday’s Powerball drawing offers an estimated $295 million jackpot, or $135.8 million in cash. The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.

On Tuesday, the Mega Millions drawing offers a $289 million jackpot, or $132 million cash. The odds of winning a Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302 million.

Powerball and Mega Millions are two of six draw 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. Lottery players now can also play digital instants games on the website at nclottery.com.

Congratulations to both winners! Hello NCEL. Just curious if anyone ever came forward with that cash five ticket that was about to expire? I sure hope whoever had ticket found it and was able to get their prize.NC Lottery
Hey there, Douglas! Unfortunately, the lucky winner did not come in to claim their prize. However, this just means that 50% of that prize money will go into the NC education fund, and 50% will go back to players in the form of prizes for promotions and other games!

Am I overlooking something or are we no longer able to look back at what was drawn by date and year? In the past you could just use the drop down to find a month and year.NC Lottery
Hi, Nancy! On some of our game pages, there is no longer the drop down option, but you can toggle through the different pages at the top of the screen to find past draw info you're looking for!

Wish I could get that lucky

I was wondering if player tickets from small towns were even put into the drawings because all winners seems to come come from bigger,Raleigh etc,we small towns contribute a lot to the lottery also. I know where Columbia is so maybe we do have a CHANCE AFTER ALL!!!NC Lottery
Hi, Vivian! It's not easier to win the lottery in a big place than a small one. There are just more people taking a chance to win there. We can assure you that if you move to Charlotte or Raleigh it does not become easier to win a lottery prize there. The lottery can only work if everyone has the same chance to win, and no matter where you live you have the same chance to beat the odds as someone anyplace else!
