Someone in Wayne County could be $20,000 richer.

Lottery officials say a $10,000 winning Powerball ticket was sold at Rawlings Express Mart on Royall Avenue in Goldsboro before Wednesday's drawing.

The winner doubled his $10,000 prize by adding the Power Play.

Three players in North Carolina matched four of the five white balls in Wednesday's drawing to win $10,000.

The white ball numbers were 26, 39, 41, 52 and 53. Powerball was 20.

Nobody took the jackpot.

Players matching all five numbers and the Powerball would have won or shared the $50.7 million jackpot. The prize goes to an estimated $62 million for Saturday.

Tickets that match the first five numbers, but miss the Powerball, win $200,000 each, and there were three of those. They were sold in Indiana, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

There were no Power Play Match 5 winners.

The Goldsboro ticket was one of two in the state that doubled the take when the customers chose to Power Play. Lottery officials say those winners have yet to claim their $20,000 prizes.

The other Power Play winner bought his ticket in Washington, N.C.
