A $1 million winning Powerball ticket was sold in Cary the same night that a Cash 5 ticket sold in Goldsboro won the $568,550 jackpot.

Someone in Cary matched all five white balls on their Powerball ticket in Wednesday's drawing and has 180 days to claim the $1 million prize. The winning ticket, which beat odds of 1 in 5.1 million, was sold at the Grocery Boy Jr. on Kildaire Farm Road.

The winning white ball numbers were 2-9-26-45-47.
