MYRTLE BEACH MAN COMES HOME TO $100,000
December 19, 2015
A Myrtle Beach man came home to $100,000.

He bought the winning Powerball ticket before leaving on vacation, not realizing he won until he got back. His ticket for the Saturday, December 5 drawing (13, 27, 33, 47, and 68 PB: 13) purchased from the Kangaroo #3490on Oleander Dr. missed the jackpot by one number.

“I can’t complain,” he said.

The winner benefited in a big way from changes that occurred to the Powerball® game in October. This time last year, his prize would have only been $20,000 for matching four white ball numbers and the red Powerball number with PowerPlay.

“Retirement is going to be sweeter,” he admitted.

The odds of matching four white ball numbers and the red Powerball number are 1 in 913,129. The odds of a 2X multiplier being selected are 1 in 1.79.

For selling the claimed ticket, Kangaroo #3490 in Myrtle Beach received a commission of $1,000.

The estimated jackpot for Saturday night’s drawing is $202 million.
