One of those ticket holders used the quick pick option Wednesday afternoon to get his $1 million winning numbers in the Powerball lottery from Wednesday night.
Tickets sold in Arizona and Missouri matched all six numbers to win the record jackpot, Powerball officials said early Thursday morning.
Jerry Hucks, of Rock Hill, S.C., was warming up his truck after getting off work early Thursday morning when he remembered the sticky note where he jotted down Wednesday night’s winning Powerball numbers.
He flipped on the light inside the cab to see the first five numbers on the sticky note aligned perfectly with the last set of numbers printed on his ticket.
Hucks, a truck builder for Daimler Trucks in Cleveland, N.C., went back inside the plant and had a co-worker look at the ticket. His co-worker told him he won $1 million.
“I didn’t even have the truck door locked, and I had a $1 million ticket out there,” he told lottery officials when he arrived Thursday to collect his winnings. “Then I can’t believe I let three or four guys at work hold my ticket and Google the numbers screaming, ‘It’s a $1 million.’ ”
His parting words to them: “I’m not quitting, but I’m not working anymore overtime.”
He called his girlfriend to tell her the news and that he was headed home. She was worried it was taking him too long, but at one point he had to pull over to throw up, overcome he beat the 1 in 5,153,633 odds.
Hucks was one of three South Carolina Education Lottery players to successfully match the first five numbers drawn Wednesday night (5, 16, 22, 23 and 29; Powerball: 6). He bought his ticket on the way to work Wednesday and he had to stand in line. He’s glad he was patient and waited for his quick pick to print.
Hucks plans to pay off his house and return to work Friday.
South Carolina also had a $2 million winner. The six-figure winners matched all five white ball numbers drawn to win $1 million. One of the ticket holders purchased PowerPlay for an extra $1, to have the $1 million Match 5 prize increased to $2 million.
Overall there were 140,000 winning tickets sold in the Palmetto State totaling $5.3 million. These winners took home anywhere from $4 to $2 million.
