Powerball Jackpot Rolls To $300 Million

Posted: Updated:
Columbia, SC -

Saturday's Powerball jackpot drawing is for an estimated $300 million, with a cash payout of $172.7 million.

A Bethune, South Carolina couple fell one number short of stopping the jackpot run last Saturday, collecting a $1 million prize this week.  

Two unclaimed tickets worth $40,000 each were sold at the Oakbrook Express in Summerville, South Carolina and the Hot Spot #1201 in Easley, South Carolina for Wednesday night's drawing.  Both tickets matched four white ball numbers and the red Powerball number (8, 24, 39, 49 and 59 PB: 5) with PowerPlay to win $40,000 when claimed.

But if it's the $290 million you're after, South Carolinians must purchase Powerball® tickets by 9:59 p.m. for Saturday's 10:59 p.m. drawing.  Powerball tickets are $2 and available wherever tickets are sold.  

The odds of winning the jackpot are long, about 1 in 176 million.

The Lottery urges everyone to please play responsibly.
