North Carolina Resident Strikes Gold with $1 Million Powerball Prize

In a thrilling twist of fate, a lucky lottery player in North Carolina has landed a massive $1 million jackpot. The fortunate individual purchased their golden ticket, valued at just $2, from the Zoom In convenience store located on South Hughes Boulevard in Elizabeth City. This ticket became a near-perfect match in the recent Powerball draw, aligning with all five white ball numbers but falling just short of capturing the Powerball itself.

The winning digits for the April 1, 2024, draw were 19, 24, 40, 42, and 56, with the Powerball set at 23. Remarkably, this ticket was not alone in its victory; it stood among six nationwide, each clinching a $1 million prize in Monday’s draw.

The victor from North Carolina is now presented with a 180-day window to step forward and claim their windfall, a timeline set from the draw date.

Looking ahead, the Powerball is gearing up for its next draw on Wednesday, promising an eye-watering jackpot of $1.09 billion. Should it find a winner, this jackpot will be recorded as the fourth-largest in the history of the game, adding an extra layer of excitement for players nationwide.


USD 98 Million!
