N.C. Lotto Weekly Winner Update: Mega Millions, Powerball Jackpot Surpass $100M


Players in this weekend’s Mega Millions and Powerball games have the chance to win a nine-figure jackpot.

Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is an estimated $159 million if taken as an annuity or $95.9 million if taken as a lump sum. The jackpot has rolled since the March 24 drawing when a player from New York claimed the $59 million jackpot.

In Tuesday’s drawing, 36,217 tickets won prizes ranging from $1 to $2,500 totaling $110,277. In the May 8 drawing, 42,070 tickets won $97,606 in prizes ranging from $1 to $1,500.

Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is an estimated $110 million if taken as an annuity or $70.5 million if the lump sum option is chosen.

In Wednesday’s Powerball drawing, 4,616 tickets won prizes ranging from $4 to $10,000 totaling $138,880. In the May 9 drawing, 4,268 tickets won $148,218 in prizes ranging from $4 to $30,000.

Fifteen coworkers at Prestage Farms in Clinton won $30,000 in the May 2 Powerball drawing. Their ticket beat odds of 1 in 648,976 to match four white balls and the red Powerball, which wins a base prize of $10,000 on a $2 ticket. But because the group always adds the $1 Power Play feature and the multiplier was three, their prize was tripled to $30,000.

“It was truly a blessing,” said Jimmy Hartley of Magnolia, one of the group’s original members. “We’ve played together since day one.”

Hartley and his 14 coworkers each won a $2,000 share of the prize money.
