Time running out to claim lottery tickets worth tens of thousands | News
Remember the record-setting $587 million Powerball® jackpot from late last year? Time is running out to claim three Powerball® tickets sold for that drawing. Two of the tickets are worth $40,000 and one is worth $10,000. The winning tickets were sold in Columbia and Orangeburg.
The November 28, 2012, Powerball® jackpot drew national attention and produced one $2 million winner, two $1 million winners, six $40,000 winners and five $10,000 winners in our state. More than 140,000 winning tickets were sold by the South Carolina Education Lottery for the drawing.
If you purchased a Powerball® ticket from Jimmy’s Mart at 9900 Two Notch Rd. in Columbia or the Quick Pantry #6 at 3224 Five Chop Rd. in Orangeburg this past November, you should check your tickets. You might be $40,000 richer. A $10,000 winning ticket was sold at the Hickory Point #46 at 7467 Garners Ferry Rd. in Columbia.
The tickets must be claimed no later than Tuesday, May 28. The tickets matched four white ball numbers and the red Powerball® number.
