MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (CBS) – It’s not quite $1.5 billion, but one lucky lottery player in Bucks County is $1 million richer.
One winning Powerball ticket worth $1 million from the Saturday’s drawing was sold at Hometown Deli along the 800 block of Durham Road in Newtown.
The ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 03-51-52-61-64, but not the red Powerball 06. Hometown Deli will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
Lottery officials were not able to confirm the identity of the winner until the prize was claimed and the ticket was validated.
The lucky ticket was sold just days after three $1 million winning tickets were purchased in Pennsylvania for the previous drawing worth a record $1.5 billion.
The Powerball jackpot rolled to an estimated annuity value of $50 million, or $31.8 million cash, for Wednesday’s drawing.
