Joseph Wilson thought he had won the $400 million Powerball jackpot, however, he was still pleased to receive his $40,000 prize.

Joseph Wilson from Supply, N.C, claimed a $40,000 prize from a ticket which he bought at Matties Quick Stop on Sea Mountain Highway in North Myrtle Beach. Wilson had correctly matched four of the white ball numbers and the red Powerball number.

In a release from lottery officials Wilson said, “I was real close. I was about ready to drop in the floor.”
The odds of winning $40,000 with the purchase of PowerPlay are 1 in 648,976. The Matties Quick Stop shop where the ticket was bought received $400 commission for selling it.

The Powerball lottery can be played in 43 States, Washington D.C. and the US Virgin Islands. The jackpot at the next draw is expected to be worth around $108 million ($61.7 million cash value).
