CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A near-record Powerball jackpot has people rushing to Charlotte-area gas stations and convenience stores Wednesday night.
The $320 million prize would pay a lump sum of $213 million to one winner.
The numbers for Wednesday's Powerball drawing are: 56, 27, 46, 6, 51, and the Powerball is 21.
North Carolina officials said in the run-up to last Saturday's drawing, the state sold $22 million in tickets. Of that, $9 million went to education.
Lottery officials expected a higher turnout for Wednesday's drawing.
Lottery player James Staton said, "$320 million is beyond thinking. So if I could win one-tenth of that, I'd be happy."
The jackpot would be the largest ever to be won in North Carolina.
