Middletown – One Powerball ticket worth $200,000 from the Jan. 11 drawing was sold at Dandy Mini Mart, 474 Reuter Blvd., Towanda, Bradford County.
The ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 05-19-29-45-47, but not the red Powerball 25, for a $200,000 second-tier prize, less 25 percent federal withholding.
The retailer will receive a $500 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.
