GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Lottery players hoping to make a few bucks have the chance at a $360 million Wednesday night with the Powerball drawing.

The winning numbers are: 2, 11, 26, 34, 41 and a powerball of 32.

While the odds of winning are about one in 176 million, South Carolina Education Lottery officials said ticket sales have been brisk leading up to the 10:59 p.m. drawing.

"A lot of players will be buying their first Powerball ticket today," said South Carolina Education Lottery Executive Director Paula Harper Bethea. "With all the media attention, you can't hide from this jackpot, but we want to urge those new to the game and those loyal to Powerball to please play responsibly."

The $2 ticket must have been bought by 9:59 p.m. Wednesday for the chance at the jackpot, which has a cash payout option of more than $229 million.

If a South Carolina player wins the jackpot, it will be the first win for the state in four years.

If there is no winner, the jackpot will roll over and continue to soar.
