NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – There’s a new millionaire in town! A lottery player purchased a winning Powerball ticket worth $2 million in North Charleston.
The ticket was purchased from the Spinx convenience store on Ashley Phosphate Road for last Wednesday night’s drawing.
According to the South Carolina Education Lottery, the ticket matched all five white ball numbers drawn. Because the ticket holder purchased PowerPlay for an extra $1, the $1 million prize increased to $2 million.
Those numbers were: 40, 43, 45, 50, and 61 Powerball: 25
