Have you heard the exciting news? One South Carolina Powerball lottery winner hit the $400 million jackpot in the Sept. 18, 2013 drawing! The Powerball winning numbers results for Wednesday's drawing were 7, 10, 22, 32, 35, and the red Powerball number was 19. What you may not know is there were also ten (10) high-tier Powerball winning tickets sold by the New Jersey Lottery, including one $1 million winner, and nine (9) $10,000 lottery winners, according to New Jersey Lottery officials on Thursday, Sept. 19.
Carole Hedinger, New Jersey's Lottery’s Executive Director announced on Thursday, Sept.19, that the $1 million ticket was sold in Hudson County at Convenience Express, 8401 River Rd., in North Bergen. The lucky New Jersey Powerball winner matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, missing only the red Powerball number for the second-tier prize in the Sept. 18 drawing. Had the winner spent an extra dollar on the Power Play option, he or she would have had their prize instantly doubled to $2 million instead of the standard $1 million prize.
Carole Hedinger commented,
"Congratulations to these fortunate lottery players who purchased the winning tickets and to the retailers that sold them. “For selling the winning tickets, the retailers have become 10 more of the Lottery’s ‘lucky locations’ overnight."

$400 Million South Carolina Powerball Jackpot Winner
According to USA TODAY, "The $399.4 million winning quick-pick ticket was sold at a Murphy Express gas station in Lexington, South Carolina, just hours before Wednesday's lottery drawing. But the winner could choose to remain anonymous because South Carolina, unlike some other states, does not require public identification of winners."

When is the Next Powerball Drawing?
According to Florida Lottery officials, the next Powerball drawing is scheduled for September 21, 2013 at 10:59 p.m. EDT. Because the South carolina Powerball winner hit the entire $400 million jackpot, the next jackpot will start over at the minimum of $40 million annuity, or $22.4 million for a one-time cash lump-sum payment. Both options are before taxes. The Powerball winning numbers are drawn live Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 10:59 p.m. EDT in Florida. The Powerball game is played in 43 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $2 each.
