Folks who bought Powerball tickets in North Carolina are waking up this morning with two $2 million prizes and three $100,000 prizes. Thousands of others won smaller prizes, including 14 $50,000 wins.

Three lucky tickets purchased in other states captured the world-record Powerball jackpot of $1.58 billion as an annuity or $983 million cash. The tickets were sold in California, Tennessee, and Florida.

The jackpot resets now to $40 million as an annuity or $24.8 million for Saturday night.

Here’s a look at North Carolina’s big wins.

Two $3 Power Play tickets matched all five white balls to win $2 million.

Because the tickets had the $1 Power Play feature added, the regular $1 million prize for matching the five white balls was automatically doubled.

Three Power Play tickets matched four white balls and the red Powerball to win $100,000.

Because each had the $1 Power Play feature added and the multiplier in Wednesday’s drawing was two, they are worth $100,000. Fourteen other tickets won $50,000 for matching four white balls and the red Powerball.
