One Powerball ticket has matched all six numbers in the latest drawing for the estimated $400 million jackpot.
The winning ticket was purchased on Augusta Road in Lexington, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery.
It was sold at Murphy USA #8611 and is worth $399.4 million. This is the largest Powerball jackpot winning ticket sold in South Carolina.
The winner can elect a cash option of $233 million or an annuity paid over 29 years for $399.4 million.
The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 7, 10, 22, 32, 35 and Powerball 19.
The winner should sign the back of the ticket, put it in a safe location, seek financial or legal advice from a trusted source, and then come forward to claim the ticket , according to state lottery officials.
The latest jackpot comes after a $448 million pot in early August was split between three tickets. In May, a Florida widow won the biggest Powerball jackpot in history - a $590 million pot.
In addition to the jackpot, South Carolina had a $1 million winning ticket sold at the Tiger Express at 1257 Elm St. in Hampton. The ticket holder correctly matched the first five white ball numbers drawn.
A press conference will be held at 11 o'clock Thursday morning at the Murphy USA convenience store where the winning ticket was purchased.
