Currituck County man scores $100,000 Powerball prize

Curtis Ballance of Jarvisburg tried his luck on a Powerball ticket and scored a $100,000 prize, according to a press release from the North Carolina Education Lottery.

The $3 Power Play ticket matched numbers on four of the white balls and the Powerball in the April 17 drawing. Ballance’s prize doubled to $100,000 when the 2X multiplier was drawn.

The odds of matching four white balls and the Powerball in a drawing are 1 in 913,129.

Ballance purchased his winning ticket from the Han-Dee Hugo on Forbes Loop in Grandy. He claimed his prize Thursday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh and took home $70,751 after required federal and state tax withholdings.

No one won Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot. The jackpot stands at $104 million as an annuity or $72 million cash for Saturday’s drawing. The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.
