– A Lancaster County Lottery retailer sold a Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball® with Power Play® ticket worth $100,000 for the Wednesday, December 18 drawing.
The ticket matched four of the five white balls drawn, 14-18-26-39-68, and the red Powerball 9, to win $100,000, less applicable withholding. Without the $1 Power Play option, the ticket would have been worth $50,000. The Power Play multiplier drawn was two.
Charlie’s Fuel & Deli, 1634 W. Main St., Ephrata, earns a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
Winners are not known until prizes are claimed and tickets are 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
More than 25,300 other PA Lottery Powerball® tickets won prizes of various amounts in the drawing, including more than 6,700 tickets purchased with Power Play®. Players should check every ticket, every time.
The Powerball jackpot rolled to an estimated annuity value of $171 million, or $116.2 million cash, for the next drawing on Saturday, December 21. Visit palottery.com to learn how to play Powerball
