One Powerball ticket has matched all six numbers in last night's drawing for that $400-million jackpot.
And lottery officials say the winning numbers are on a ticket purchased right here in the Midlands.
South Carolina Education Lottery Director Paula Harper Bethea says it was sold in Lexington at the Murphy USA gas station on Augusta Road.
Bethea says the winner has 180 days to claim the fourth-largest jackpot in the game's history.
She recommends signing the ticket immediately if that hasn't been done already, then lining up legal and financial investment advice.
And she says the winner or winners have a big decision to make.
“The cash is a one-time payment of $223-million but the annuity is the entire jackpot – $400-million,” Bethea explains. “It's paid out over 29 years with an average payment of $13-million a year. So, whoever wins has to make sure that they're making the right choice for themselves and their family.”
The winning numbers for Wednesday night's drawing are 7-10-22-32-35 and the Powerball is 19.
The last time South Carolina had a Powerballl jackpot winner was in August 2009 when Solomon Jackson won $260-million.
He also bought his ticket at a Murphy USA gas station – the one next to the Walmart on Garners Ferry Road in Columbia.
