Guy Madlock of Bahama is celebrating his good fortune after he won a $100,000 Powerball prize.
Madlock bought a $3 Power Play ticket for Saturday’s drawing at the Cruizers on North Roxboro Road in Durham.
He claimed the prize Monday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required state and federal tax withholdings, he took home $70,751.
The ticket matched the numbers on four of the white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000. Because he added the $1 Power Play feature, the prize doubled to $100,000 when the 2X multiplier was drawn. The ticket beat odds of one in 913,129.
The jackpot for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing is $82 million or $50.2 million cash.
Ticket sales from draw games like Powerball make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $650 million a year for the state. For details on how $13.8 million in lottery funds made a difference in Durham County last year, click on the “Impact” section of the lottery’s website.
