• SC lottery officials urge residents to check tickets

    Updated:
    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Just one week remains before the lucky holder of a Powerball ticket worth $150,000 becomes very unlucky indeed.

    Officials say the unclaimed ticket for the Oct. 27 drawing was purchased at Sharpe Shoppe #209 in Blythewood. It must be claimed no later than Thursday, April 25.

    The ticket matched four white ball numbers and the red Powerball number. It also included the PowerPlay option, which tripled the $50,000 prize when a "3'' multiplier was drawn. The winning numbers were: 8, 12, 13, 19, 27 and Powerball 4.

    The ticket must be claimed at the Columbia Claims Center before 4 p.m. April 25 or, if mailed, postmarked by that date. If it's not claimed, the winnings will be deposited into the Education Lottery Account to support educational programs in South Carolina.
