Officials said more than 366,000 winning tickets were sold, although 200,000 of those tickets were $4 winners.
Five players won $100,000 and another 11 players won $50,000, according to officials.
One Columbia winner bought her $100,000-winning ticket at the Pitt Stop on Dutch Fork Road in Ballentine, officials said.

“When I bought the ticket, I told the clerk ‘I hope you gave me a winning number,’” she told lottery officials.
For selling the winning ticket, the Pitt Stop received a $1,000 commission, officials said.
The winning numbers in Wednesday night’s drawing were: 4, 8, 19, 27, 34 and Powerball 10.
Three jackpot-winning tickets that matched all six numbers were sold in California, Tennessee and Florida, officials said.
