A Powerball ticket sold in Hendersonville won $2 million and a Surry County ticket earned $50,000 in Saturday night's drawing for the North Carolina Education Lottery.
The $2 million ticket was sold at the Publix on Greenville Highway in Hendersonville. The winning numbers were 10-17-18-43-65 for the white balls and 13 for the red Powerball. The ticket matched all five white balls and the added $1 Power Play feature doubled the prize to $2 million. The odds were 1 in 11.7 million.
It marked the largest prize won nationally for the drawing.
A second big Powerball win happened in the Ararat community in Surry County. A $50,000 ticket was sold at the Lil Mtn Cupboard on Little Mountain Road. The $50,000 ticket matched four of the white balls and the red Powerball drawn, beating odds of 1 in 913,129.
Winners have 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize.
There were no winners in Saturday's Powerball jackpot, which means the jackpot for Wednesday's drawing will climb to $204 million, worth $124.2 million in cash.
