Powerball is a multi-state lottery game available to the residents of South Carolina through the SC Education Lottery. It is a popular game that often carries a jackpot of over $200 million. If you’ve never played SC Powerball before and want to get to grips with the ins and outs of the game, then read all about it in our detailed overview below.

How to Play South Carolina Powerball

Even if you’ve never played any form of lottery before, learning how to play South Carolina Powerball will be a walk in the park. Here’s what you need to do in order to get into the draw:

  1. Find the official SC Education Lottery retailer to purchase a Powerball ticket. Each ticket contains five plays, and each play costs $2.
  2. Fill out the ticket by selecting five different numbers from 1 to 69 and a single Powerball number from 1 to 26.
  3. If you don’t know which numbers to choose and want them to be selected randomly for you, tick the box labelled Quick Pick.
  4. Optimally, you can mark the PowerPlay box. This means your prize, should you win, can be multiplied by the PowerPlay multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, and 10x. Choosing this option costs an additional dollar. 
  5. For one more dollar, you can choose the Double Play option. Doing this gives you the chance of extending your winnings in the Double Play draw, which takes place after the regular draw.
  6. Once you are satisfied with your selections, print the ticket and sign it with your name on the back.
  7. Wait for the scheduled draw and follow up on your plays.

Instead of purchasing the ticket for every draw, you can select the Multi-Draw option at the bottom of the ticket, which lets you have the same place for up to 30 consecutive draws.

You can only participate in South Carolina Powerball draws by purchasing tickets through a licensed retailer. At the moment, the Lottery does not allow you to buy tickets online.

Powerball Drawing Schedule

South Carolina Powerball draws take place three times a week — every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 p.m., local time. According to the Multi-State Lottery Association, all Powerball tickets must be purchased and printed at least 59 minutes prior to the start of the draw.

Payouts, Odds, and Rules

There’s no great complexity to the rules of Powerball. All you need to do is choose six numbers — five regular ones (white balls) from 1 to 69 and a single Powerball number (red ball) from 1 to 26. 

The jackpot goes to the person who correctly matches all six numbers. Of course, if there’s more than one lucky winner, the jackpot amount will be split equally. In addition, there are eight other winning combinations with predetermined prizes. 

The same rules apply to the Double Play draw.

Here is a table displaying odds and payouts for all winning combinations in Powerball.

Numbers Matched Prize Double Play Prize Odds
5 numbers + Powerball Jackpot $10 million 1 in 292,201,338
5 numbers $1 million $500,000 1 in 11,688,054
4 numbers + Powerball $50,000 $50,000 1 in 913,129
4 numbers $100 $500 1 in 36,525
3 numbers + Powerball $100 $500 1 in 14,494
3 numbers $7 $20 1 in 580
2 numbers + Powerball $7 $20 1 in 701
1 number + Powerball $4 $10 1 in 92
Powerball only $4 $7 1 in 38

The jackpot amount varies, depending on the draw. All prizes can be multiplied through the PowerPlay feature, except for the jackpot and the combination of five numbers, which is capped at $2 million.

How to Claim Prizes

There are several ways in which you can claim your lottery prizes in South Carolina. These include:

  • Authorized lottery retailer
  • Mail
  • Columbia Claims Center

You can only go to retailers for prizes that don’t exceed $500. Any prizes up to $100,000 can be received by mail. However, note that the prizes over $500 can only be claimed with a claim form available at lottery retailers and on the official website of the SC Education Lottery. You will also need a copy of an ID document (state ID, military ID, driver’s license, or your passport).

If you’ve won more than $100,000, you will only be allowed to claim the prize at the Columbia Claims Center at 1309 Assembly Street, Columbia.
