Luck - $88 million worth - landed in North Carolina on Saturday night.

Luck - $88 million worth - landed in North Carolina on Saturday night.

One Powerball ticket purchased there matched all the numbers - 3, 11, 18, 22 and 28, as well as the Powerball of 33.

Pennsylvania had a little luck as well, scoring $200,000 for a ticket that hit the first five, but not the Powerball.

Winning $1 million for having the first five plus the Power Play multiplier option were three tickets, sold in Nebraska, Connecticut and Tennessee.

Other $200,000 winners: Two in Missouri, one each in Colorado, Iowa, Indiana, Minnesota, North Carolina and South Dakota.

As a result of the big payday - $42.5 million, before taxes, in cash - the annuity jackpot on Wednesday will be worth $20 million.

Powerball is now played in 32 states, including Delaware.

Mega Millions worth $68 million. One New Jersey ticket won $250,000 on Friday night, for having all the numbers - 4, 9, 12, 16 and 46 - except for the Mega Ball of 44. Ditto for three tickets sold in Texas and one each in Massachusetts, New York and Virginia.

Because no one matched them all, tomorrow night's jackpot will be $68 million, or $41.4 million cash.

Mega Millions is played in 12 states, including Maryland.
