RALEIGH, N.C. — No one won the $1.6 billion Powerball grand prize Saturday night, but eight winners got a smaller jackpot in North Carolina, including a person in Greensboro.
A Greensboro winner won $150,000 after purchasing a $3 Power Play ticket from the Kwik Trip on East Wendover Avenue.
One winner in Asheboro won the same amount after purchasing their ticket online on the lottery's website.
Six others in North Carolina won $50,000 in Elm City, Cary, Benson, Marshall, Havelock, and Wilmington.
With no one claiming the grand prize the total jackpot jumps up to $1.9 billion for Monday's drawing, a record high and world's largest jackpot ever.
“We’ve never seen a jackpot go this high before,” said Mark Michalko, executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery.
“Remember, to get your chance at winning it, it only takes a single $2 or $3 ticket. Play smart and have fun dreaming about what you would do if you won,” said Michalko.
The next drawing is Monday, November 7.
