If you were on jackpot watch this weekend, you saw the Cash 5 jackpot hit on Saturday night while the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots left the $100 million mark even further in the distance.
The $355,410 Cash 5 jackpot was won by a lucky ticket sold at the JMS Food Mart on East Raleigh Boulevard in Rocky Mount. The winning numbers for the drawing were 7-20-24-28-36. The winning ticketholder has 180 days from the date of the drawing to come to lottery headquarters in Raleigh to collect the prize money.
The Mega Millions jackpot rolled Friday night to an estimated $114 million annuity ($86.4 million cash) for Tuesday’s drawing. A ticket sold in Charlotte matched four white balls and the Mega Ball to win $10,000. That ticket was sold at the Little Rock Food Mart on Little Rock Road.
On Saturday, a big Powerball jackpot got even bigger. While no ticket matched all six numbers, North Carolina players won $170,561 in total prizes. Players with a ticket for Wednesday’s drawing have the chance to win the $165 million annuity ($107.7 million cash).
Best of luck to all our players in this week’s drawings.
