South Carolina Powerball SC Power Ball

The South Carolina Lottery is 1 of 47 US State Lotteries & District Lotteries that offer the Powerball game – in this case the SC Powerball – as part of its overall portfolio of lottery games.

Powerball is a Multi-State USA Lottery that is run by the Multi State Lottery Association – MUSLand is one of the largest lottery games in the world having produced a massive record jackpot of US$ 1.58 BILLION in January 2016. This huge sum is the largest lottery jackpot ever to be won to date in the history of world jackpot lottery games more than doubling the record Mega Millions jackpot of US$ 656 MILLION created in March 2012.

The very first Powerball draw took place on April 22nd 1992 with 16 USA Lottery companies – who were all members of the MUSL – taking part when the game changed its format and name from Lotto America which had started on February 13th 1988.

South Carolina Powerball lottery tickets were first sold back on October 9th 2002 when the SC Lottery became the 25th member to join the MUSL – Multi State Lottery Association – who run & syndicate the game right across the United States of America.

SC Powerball How it Works

The South Carolina Powerball works in the same way as the Powerball game works in all the States and Districts in the US that offer the game.

Jackpots start off at US$ 40 Million and ROLLOVER after each draw when the top prize is not won – increasing in size by at least US$ 10 Million each time making for some enormous jackpot figures.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the Powerball SC game from 2 separate drawing machines – firstly 5 numbers from 59 white balls are drawn and then 1 number (the Powerball) from 35 red balls.

Draws for the Powerball South Carolina take place twice every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10.59pm EST.

There is also a Powerball prize multiplier facility available when playing that dramatically increases the size of a Powerball win and is called Powerball POWERPLAY...
