Myrtle Beach Area Lottery Winner Claims $1 Million: ���Going To Have A Pretty Good Christmas���

By Mary Norkol

Yet another lottery ticket worth thousands of dollars has been purchased in Myrtle Beach.

A $100,000 prize from Monday’s drawing will be awarded to the person who purchased a Powerball lottery ticket at a Circle K gas station on North Kings Highway near Lake Arrowhead Road, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery. The winner missed the jackpot by only one number, and the Powerball drawing continues Wednesday, a chance for someone to win up to $575 million.

The Myrtle Beach winner’s numbers were 2 - 13 - 32 - 33 - 48 and Powerball: 22. Four of the first five numbers matched, along with the Powerball, culminating in a $50,000 prize that was doubled to $100,000 because a two was drawn and the lottery player purchased PowerPlay option.

The odds of matching four white balls and the red Powerball are 1 in 913,129, according to the lottery system.

Check your tickets to see if you’re the $100,000 winner. Winners have 180 days to claim prizes.
