The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday has been elevated to an estimated $425 million, the third largest in the game’s history. The size of the jackpot increased based on strong ticket sales for the drawing.
That means that if a player matches all six numbers on Wednesday, they can win a $425 million annuity or take a lump sum of $244.7 million.
From the beginning of the jackpot’s roll on June 26 through Tuesday, North Carolina Powerball players won more than $3 million prizes, including a $1 million prize, seven $10,000 prizes and three $40,000 prizes.
Remember to check your numbers closely. There's more than just the jackpot to win in Powerball, and even more if you Power Play.
We'd love to meet a brand new North Carolina jackpot winner this week.
Best of luck to everyone!
