Get Ready to Play Powerball!

Another addition to the North Carolina lottery is coming, a big one.

Starting early Tuesday, you can purchase Powerball lottery tickets. The game has gained popularity in recent years with occasional nine digit jackpots. Wednesday's prize, the first after ticket sales begin in North Carolina, is estimated to reach $38 million.

You can also see the winning numbers for the state's first powerball drawing here on WITN-7 Wednesday night just before the 11 p.m. news.
