Local Lottery Players Hit It Big

A couple of eastern Carolinians hit it big recently with the lottery.

Charlie Long of Greenville matched all five white balls on Saturday's Powerball drawing winning him $200,000.

Long picked his own numbers when he bought the ticket at Haddock's grocery in Winterville. He said he was already planning to buy a new car, but his prize will make purchasing one a little easier.

An unidentified player in Jacksonville also holds a ticket for Saturday night's drawing worth $200,000.

You can watch the Powerball drawings live on WITN Wednesday & Saturday nights right before the 11:00 p.m. news.
