COLUMBIA, SC – A Powerball ticket sold in Kingstree for Wednesday’s drawing is worth $150,000.
A press release from lottery officials says the winning ticket was purchased at the Sav Way store on North Longstreet Street.
Because the player paid an additional $1 for PowerPlay, their $50,000 prize tripled to $150,000 when a “3” multiplier was selected.
