RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Lottery officials in North Carolina are waiting for the holder of one of three winning tickets in the $564 million Powerball drawing to step forward.

A statement from the N.C. Education Lottery on Thursday said a Scotchman convenience store in the town of Shallotte (shah-LOWT’) in Brunswick County sold the ticket. The store is eligible to receive a $50,000 retailer incentive award for selling a winning jackpot ticket.

The winner has 180 days from Wednesday’s drawing to claim the prize at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. The win is the fourth time that a North Carolina ticket has claimed a Powerball jackpot.

Shallotte is located on U.S. 17, 8 miles north of the southeastern North Carolina coast and about 15 miles east of the South Carolina state line.
