According to a news release from the South Carolina Education Lottery, the ticket was sold at the Circle K store at 1599 U.S. Highway 17.  Because the lucky winner paid an additional $1 for PowerPlay, their $50,000 tripled to $150,000 when a "3" multiplier was selected.

Almost 15,000 players in the Palmetto State hold tickets for prizes from $4 up to $150,000. Players have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes, the release says.

The odds of matching four white ball numbers and the red Powerball number are 1 in 913,129. The estimated jackpot for Wednesday night's drawing is $40 million.
