A player from South Carolina matched all 5 white ball numbers plus had the Power Play option for a $1 million cash win while 3 other tickets correctly matched the 5 white numbers without the Power Play and won $200K.
The jackpot for the Saturday, October 11th drawing will be $20 million with the cash option at around $10m.
