Powerball jackpot ticket sold in South Carolina


CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The slogan, "It's a great day in South Carolina" is certainly true for the person that purchased a Powerball ticket worth an estimated $400 million dollars.

The winning jackpot ticket was sold in South Carolina, according to an update on the Powerball website posted early Thursday. The lucky streak in the Palmetto State didn't stop there. The Powerball website also shows that five tickets worth $1 million dollars each were sold around the country. One of those tickets was sold in South Carolina.{}

WACH Fox in Columbia spoke with a SC Education Lottery spokesperson who said the Powerball jackpot ticket was sold at a Murphy USA on Augusta Road in Lexington. That official said the ticket worth $1 million was sold in Hampton.

The Murphy store will get $50,000 as a selling bonus.

A press release from the SC Education Lottery says this is the largest Powerball jackpot winning ticket ever sold in the Palmetto State. It's also the fourth largest jackpot in Powerball history.

The winning Powerball numbers were 7,10,22,32,35, and a Powerball of 19.

Lottery officials have said the estimated cash payout of the winning jackpot ticket is $223 million.

"The winner should sign the back of the ticket, put it in a safe location, seek financial or legal advice from a trusted source, and then come forward to claim the ticket," the release read.

The Executive Director for the SC Education Lottery said in a press conference Thursday that if the winner was just passing through, they need to return to COlumbia to claim their winnings. They have 180 days to do so.
