There was no perfect ticket in Wednesday's drawing, elevating the jackpot for Saturday night to a $228 million annuity ($139.6 million cash).
But two tickets sold in North Carolina matched four white balls and the Powerball to win big prizes. The winning numbers were 4-11-39-45-48 and 9 for the red Powerball.
A $2 ticket sold in Brunswick County won $50,000. It was purchased at the Kangaroo Express on Main Street in Shallote.
The other lucky ticket had the $1 Power Play feature added. Because the Power Play multiplier was 3X, the $50,000 prize tripled $150,000. That ticket was purchased at the Circle K on South Memorial Drive in Greenville.
Winners have 180 days to claim prizes.
The $50,000 prize can be collected at any of the state's six regional claims centers. The closest one to Shallotte is the lottery's Wilmington office. The $150,000 prize must be claimed at Lottery Headquarters in Raleigh.
We'll have big checks waiting for both winners.
