Monday’s Powerball drawing brings $1 million win, largest nationwide
Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot reaches $100 million
RALEIGH – One lucky ticket purchased in Johnston County in Monday’s Powerball drawing matched all five white balls to win a $1 million prize.
The lucky winner purchased the $2 ticket from Murphy Express on N.C. 42 West near Interstate 40. The win was the top prize won nationwide in Monday’s drawing.
The odds of matching numbers on all five white balls are 1 in 11.6 million. The winner has 180 days from the drawing to claim the prize.
Since no one won Monday’s jackpot, the new jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing will climb to $100 million as an annuity, or $51.3 million cash.
The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.
Ticket sales from draw games make it possible for the lottery to raise $2.5 million a day on average for education.
Congratulations to the lucky one!
