"This Powerball jackpot is turning out to be a lucky one for North Carolinians," said Mark Michalko, executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery. "We've already seen multiple $2 million wins. We're hoping that someone from North Carolina brings this jackpot home. "
The winning ticket matched all five white balls drawn to win $1 million. Because someone added the extra $1 Power Play feature, the prize doubled to $2 million. The lucky ticket beat odds of 1 in 11.7 million.
Margo Konopacke of Travelers Rest, SC, won the other $2 million Powerball prize. She bought her ticket on Saturday while she was shopping at the Publix on Greenville Highway in Hendersonville.
The next Powerball drawing is Saturday. The current jackpot is $224 million, worth $136.4 million cash.
