MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (CBS)—A Powerball ticket worth $1 million from the October 19th drawing was sold in Chester County.

The winning ticket was sold at ACME Market on 2176 Baltimore Pike.

The winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 09-33-54-56-57, but not the red Powerball 05, to win individual prizes of $1 million, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The retailer will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the 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 a winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery’s seven area offices.
