COLUMBIA, SC (March 21, 2019) – The first day of spring bloomed large for three Powerball® players in South Carolina. The South Carolina Education Lottery is reporting two tickets worth $2 MILLION and one ticket worth $1 MILLION were sold for last night’s Powerball® drawing that featured an advertised jackpot of just over half-a-billion dollars.

The $2 MILLION wins were purchased from the QuikTrip #1048 at 9565 Charlotte Hwy. in Indian Land and the Publix Super Markets #1012 at 111 W. Butler Rd. in Mauldin. Skiff LLC at 205 S. Goose Creek Blvd. in Goose Creek sold the $1 MILLION ticket.

The three tickets matched all five white ball numbers drawn. Because two of the ticket holders purchased PowerPlay® for an extra $1, their $1 million prize increased to $2 MILLION. Winners should sign their ticket and secure them.

Check your tickets. More than to 38,000 players in South Carolina hold tickets for prizes from $4 up to $2 MILLION.

Players have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes. Winners above $100,000 must come to the Columbia Claims Center to redeem their winnings.

The estimated jackpot for Saturday night’s Powerball® jackpot drawing is $625 million!

South Carolinians interested in taking a chance on the fourth-largest Powerball® jackpot must purchase tickets by 9:59 p.m. for Saturday’s 10:59 p.m. drawing. Tickets are available at most convenience stores and grocery stores in our state.

Net proceeds from every dollar spent by players on the South Carolina Education Lottery are returned to the state in the form of funding for education, prizes, retailer commissions, and payment to contractors for goods and services.
