NC lottery: $2M winning Powerball ticket sold in North Carolina

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) -- Someone in Fayetteville, North Carolina, is waking up Tuesday as a new millionaire.

Monday night's Powerball drawing was worth $425 million. Nobody matched all of the numbers, but one person in North Carolina did win the next best prize.

That person matched all five white balls--missing only the red Powerball.

That red Powerball was ultimately worth $419 million. Still, tough to complain about winning $2 million.

The winning ticket was bought at the Harris Teeter on Raeford Road in Fayetteville.

With no ultimate winner Monday night, the Powerball jackpot will increase to an estimated $454 million on Wednesday night's drawing.
