MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (WTXF) - Somebody who bought a ticket in Philadelphia for Saturday night’s Powerball will be $1 million richer when they turn it in.
That lucky person bought the ticket at the Sunoco A Plus store at 1560 Cottman Avenue in the Northeast.
Pennsylvania Lottery officials say “the ticket correctly matched all five white balls drawn, 08-10-26-27-33, but not the red Powerball 22, to win $1 million, less applicable tax withholding. The retailer earns a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.”
Prizes must be claimed and tickets validated before winners can be identified. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date – Dec. 3 in this case -- to claim their prize.
The Lottery encourages the ticket holder to sign the back, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters or any of Lottery's seven area offices.
By the way, more than 24,600 Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball tickets won prizes -- just not $1 million.
And since nobody won the jackpot, Wednesday’s drawing will be worth an estimated annuity value of $67 million, or $40.4 million cash.
