Powerball Ticket Worth $1 Million Sold In Montgomery County
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Powerball ticket worth $1 million was sold in Montgomery County.
The ticket for Wednesday night’s drawing correctly matched all five white balls, 04-20-34-39-58, but not the red Powerball 31. The prize was $1 million.
The ticket was sold at the In & Out Food Store on DeKalb Street in Bridgeport, Pa. The store will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The prize must be claimed and the ticket validated before the winner can be identified. 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 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at headquarters.
More than 27,800 other prize-winning Powerball tickets were sold statewide for the May 21 drawing.
The Powerball jackpot grew to an estimated annuity value of $132 million, or $78.7 million cash, for the Saturday, May 24, drawing.
