The Powerball drawing on Monday night had good news for local participants. Two Powerball tickets purchased in North Carolina were responsible for two big wins including a $2 million prize in Charlotte and a $200,000 prize in Robeson County. The ticket for the $2 Million winners was purchased at a Sam’s Mart on Providence Road. That was the largest prize nationally in the Monday drawing.

All five white ball numbers were matched on the $3 Power Play ticket to win $1 million. That prize was then doubled to $2 million because of the added Power Play feature. The odds of matching numbers those numbers are 1 in 11.6 million. Additionally, the drawing was worth a $200,000 win for someone in Robeson County. That individual bought a $3 Power Play ticket at HnM Mart & Pizza on East 4th Avenue in Red Springs. That ticket matched the four white balls and the red Powerball to win $50,000. That number was quadrupled to $200,000 thanks to the Power Play feature.

The winners, who have yet to come forward have 180 days to claim their prizes. With no jackpot winner in Monday’s drawing the total climbs to $378 million as an annuity prize or $275.9 million cash for Wednesday’s drawing.
