RALEIGH Someone bought a Powerball lottery ticket worth $2 million at a Food Lion in North Raleigh.
The $3 Power Play ticket matched all five white balls but not the red Powerball in Wednesday night’s drawing, according to the N.C. Education Lottery.
The winning ticket was sold at the Food Lion at 1901 Leesville Road. Players have 180 days from the drawing date to claim their prize.
The odds of matching the five white balls are 1 in 5.1 million. The winning numbers were 6, 10, 23, 41 and 45.
Powerball tickets are sold in 42 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. North Carolina joined the game in 2006.
The Food Lion shopper wasn’t the only winner, according to WRAL-TV. Lottery officials said the game produced another 18,856 winning tickets totaling $142,303. The biggest among them was a $10,000 ticket sold at the Pop Shoppe in Charlotte.
