While that record $590-million Powerball jackpot will be claimed with a ticket bought in Florida, the holders of more than 114,000 tickets sold in South Carolina will also get a share of the prize money from last Saturday night's drawing.
State lottery officials say those payouts will range from $4 to a couple million bucks.
One ticket sold in Fort Mill matched five of the six winning numbers and the player spent an extra dollar for the Power Play option, making it worth $2-million.
Meanwhile, three winning tickets from South Carolina still have not been redeemed from the previous record Powerball jackpot of $587-million last November.
They were all sold in the Midlands, and the deadline to turn them in is one week from today.
State lottery spokeswoman Holli Armstrong tells WVOC, “Jimmy's Mart on Two Notch Road in Columbia and the Quick Pantry in Orangeburg sold tickets for $40,000. And the Hickory Point on Garners Ferry Road here in Columbia sold a $10,000 winning ticket. And these prizes have to be claimed by Tuesday at 4 p.m. right here at the lottery office.”
Armstrong says if the prizes are not claimed in the next week, the winnings will go into an account to support educational needs in South Carolina, such as school buses and various programs.
