— One winning Powerball® ticket worth $1 million from the Saturday, December 8, drawing was sold at a Pennsylvania Lottery retailer in Allegheny County.
The ticket correctly matched all five white balls drawn, 14-32-34-46-61, but not the red Powerball 10, to win $1 million, less applicable withholding. The retailer, Shop ‘n Save, 799 Castle Shannon Blvd., Pittsburgh, will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
Winners are unknown until prizes are claimed and tickets validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes. The holder of the winning ticket should sign the back of the ticket and contact the nearest Lottery office
In addition to the $1 million winning ticket, a Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball® with Power Play® ticket worth $100,000 for the Saturday drawing was sold in Delaware County. The Deli Store, 918 E. Baltimore Ave., Lansdowne, earns a bonus of $500 for selling the winning ticket.
The $100,000 ticket matched four of the five white balls drawn and the Powerball to win the prize, less applicable withholding. Without the $1 Power Play option, the ticket would have been worth $50,000. The multiplier drawn was two.
More than 30,000 Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball tickets won prizes of various amounts in the Saturday drawing, including more than 7,600 tickets purchased with the Power Play option that multiplied their prizes by two.
Players should check every ticket, every time, and immediately sign winning tickets. Lower-tier prizes may be claimed at a Lottery retailer.
The Powerball jackpot rolled to an estimated annuity value of $230 million, or $135.9 million cash, for the Wednesday, December 12, drawing.
