MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (CBS) — While no one hit the big Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night’s drawing, a lucky ticket worth $2 million was sold in Bucks County.
Pennsylvania Lottery officials say the winning ticket, worth $2 million, was sold at the Sunoco A Plus on Bristol Road in Trevose.
The winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls drawn, 11-19-33-42-52, but not the red Powerball 33, and added Power Play®, which sets the prize at $2 million, less 25 percent federal withholding. Without purchasing the $1 Power Play option, this winning ticket would have been worth $1 million.
The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling this winning ticket.
Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.
The Lottery encourages the holder of the winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at any of Lottery’s seven area offices or at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County. Claims may be filed Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices and at headquarters from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
More than 78,400 other Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball tickets won prizes of varying amounts in the Sept. 11 drawing. They included three winners of $10,000.
The Powerball jackpot for Sept. 14 offers an annuity value of $317 million or a $176.3 million cash prize.
Powerball is sold in 43 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
