While no one in South Carolina won the record-setting Powerball Jackpot Wednesday, the South Carolina Education Lottery website says over 360,000 lesser-winning tickets were sold in the state.

Five players won $100,000 and another 11 players won $50,000. One of the winners purchased her ticket in Columbia. 

According to South Carolina Education Lottery, 344 people won $100.

The remaining ticket holders won prizes of $7 or $4.

The winning numbers Wednesday were 4-8-19-27-34-10. The jackpot will be split by the owners of three tickets sold in California, Tennessee and Florida.

The odds of winning the jackpot were one in more than 292 million.
