Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball® Ticket Worth $150,000 Sold in Venango County

Middletown, PA – A Pennsylvania Lottery retailer in Venango County sold a Powerball® with Power Play® ticket worth $150,000 for the Wednesday, April 8 drawing.
The ticket matched four of the five white balls drawn, 02-37-39-48-54, and the red Powerball 5, 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.
Spanky’s Tobacco World, 1719 Riverside Drive, Oil City, 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 20,400 other PA Lottery Powerball® tickets won prizes of various amounts in the drawing, including more than 5,700 tickets purchased with Power Play®. Players should check every ticket, every time.
A jackpot-winning Powerball® ticket for the April 8 drawing was sold in New Jersey. The jackpot-winning ticket is worth an estimated annuity value of $190 million, or $156 million cash. The jackpot had been rolling since Jan. 29, 2020 when the last jackpot worth $396.9 million was won in Florida.
The Powerball® jackpot rolled to an estimated annuity value of $20 million, or $16.4 million cash, for the next drawing on Saturday, April 11.

On April 2, The Powerball Product Group announced its decision to determine Powerball’s advertised jackpot based on game sales and interest rates citing that the changes are necessary to ensure that ticket sales can support the Powerball® jackpot and other lower-tier cash prizes.

The Pennsylvania Lottery’s Powerball® Rules have been updated to allow the Multi-State Lottery Association Powerball Product Group to increase, decrease or eliminate guaranteed minimum prizes. Visit to learn how to play Powerball.
