The historic Powerball drawing produced 10 big wins in the state, including a $1 million prize, as North Carolinians tried their luck at winning the world’s largest jackpot. A lucky ticket sold in California won the record $2.04 billion jackpot in the drawing that was delayed until Tuesday morning. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292 million.
North Carolina winners will collect one $1 million prize, a $100,000 prize, and eight $50,000 prizes from the drawing. In all, 343,323 tickets sold in our state won prizes in the drawing. Since Aug. 6 when the jackpot started at $20 million, North Carolinians have won a total of three $1 million prizes, seven $150,000 prizes, six $100,000 prizes, and 39 $50,000 prizes.
