– A Lackawanna County convenience store sold a Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball® with Power Play® ticket worth $150,000 for the Saturday, August 17, drawing.
The ticket matched four of the five white balls drawn, 18-21-24-30-60, and the red Powerball 20, to win $150,000, less applicable withholding. Without the $1 Power Play option, the ticket would have been worth $50,000. The Power Play multiplier drawn was three.
Joe’s Kwik Mart, 1327 Providence Road, Scranton, earns a $500 selling bonus.
