CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The North Carolina lottery confirms a Charlotte man just won $100,000 after purchasing a $3 Power Play Ticket from the Charlotte Airport.
The NC lottery reports Steven Rush, of Charlotte, is the winner of a $100,000 Powerball prize in Saturday’s drawing.
Rush bought a $3 Power Play ticket at the lottery vending machine at the Charlotte Bistro at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
His Quick Pick ticket matched four numbers and the Powerball – only one number away from winning the jackpot. The 2x multiplier in the drawing multiplied Rush’s $50,000 prize to $100,000. After federal and state tax withholdings, Rush took home $70,746.
