11/21/2016 1:16:09 PM

COLUMBIA, SC (November 21, 2016) – Someone could be counting $359 million blessings this Thanksgiving.

The winning numbers for the eleventh largest jackpot in Powerball® history will be drawn on Wednesday at 10:59 p.m.

South Carolinians interested in purchasing a ticket can do so for $2 up until 9:59 p.m. the night of the drawing at most convenience stores and grocery stores around the state.

While the odds of winning it all are long, about 1 in 293 million, it’s not impossible.

Seven jackpot winning tickets have been sold in South Carolina, the last in September 2013. If it happens Wednesday, the winner has the option to take a $219 million cash payout or the annuity, which works out to the full jackpot paid out in 29 installments over 30 years.

Good luck, South Carolina!

Please play responsibly.
