Jackpot Fever Continues as Powerball® Rolls to $750 Million
10/25/2018 2:00:44 PM

COLUMBIA, SC (October 25, 2018) – South Carolina is still buzzing about selling a $1.5 billion Mega Millions® jackpot winning ticket. But not to be forgotten is Powerball® that failed to produce a jackpot winner last night, but will give players a shot at $750 million on Saturday.

Powerball® has grown quietly right alongside Mega Millions®, and now touts its third largest jackpot.

In last night’s drawing over 75,000 winning tickets were sold here in South Carolina. Of these, 27,000 players who purchased PowerPlay® for an extra dollar will see their winnings doubled. The winning numbers were: 3, 21, 45, 53, 56 and Powerball 22.

A player at the A & D Food Mart on W. Floyd Baker Blvd. in Gaffney purchased a ticket with PowerPlay® worth $100,000. A $50,000 winning ticket was sold 20 miles away in Spartanburg at the Citgo Food Mart at 1001 N. Church St.

Tickets for Saturday’s $750 million jackpot are available at lottery retailers statewide. Tickets cost $2, and in South Carolina must be purchased by 9:59 p.m. for Saturday’s 10:59 p.m. drawing. The cash value is $428.6 million.

Odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 293 million.

Good luck, South Carolina!
