#powerball Florida man claims $150,000 Powerball prize

June 27th, 2016

Henry Baldree of Vero Beach, Fla. is North Carolina’s latest big Powerball winner after claiming a $150,000 prize.

In Wednesday’s drawing, Baldree beat odds of 1 in 913,129 as the numbers from his lucky Quick Pick ticket matched four of the white balls and the red Powerball. That match carries a $50,000 prize, but because Baldree paid an extra $1 for the Power Play option his prize tripled when the 3X multiplier was drawn.

Baldree, who lives part of the year in Brevard in Transylvania County, received his after-tax winnings of $103,875 Monday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh.

He purchased the lucky ticket at the Speedway on Dickinson Avenue in Greenville.
