One lucky person in South Carolina has an extra reason to celebrate on the Fourth of July.

A ticket sold in South Carolina won $2 million in the Powerball drawing on Wednesday night.

The winning lottery ticket matched five of the six numbers, earning $1 million for the lucky ticket holder. But the winner also opted to use the “power play” to double their winnings, boosting their winnings to $2 million.

No one picked all six numbers correctly to win the full $165 million jackpot. The next drawing will be on Saturday.

Press Association’s 2015 award for Best Series on a toxic Chester County landfill fire, and was part of The State’s award-winning 2016 election coverage.
