Bucks County Man Claims $33.1 Million Powerball® Jackpot

MIDDLETOWN, Pa., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Roger Custer, of Levittown, Bucks County today claimed a $33.1 million Powerball™ jackpot from the Dec. 5, 2012 drawing.

Lottery Deputy Executive Director for Marketing and Product Development Drew Svitko today presented a ceremonial check for $33,134,526.18 to Custer, holder of the single jackpot-winning ticket from that drawing. Custer was accompanied by his wife, Linda, and several family members.

The ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 13-17-19-27-38, and the red Powerball, 12, to win a $50 million annuity, or $33.1 million cash prize, less 25 percent federal withholding. Custer elected to take the cash prize.

"The best part about winning the Powerball jackpot is being able to take care of my family," said Custer, who is retired. "It's a good feeling to know that my family will never have to worry."

Custer purchased the ticket at Levittown News & Tobacco, 411 S. Oxford Valley Road, Fairless Hills, Bucks County. The retailer earns a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Custer presented the ticket for validation today at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County. Lottery officials confirmed it was the jackpot-winning ticket after examining the ticket and executing proprietary security measures.

"I'm delighted to introduce Roger Custer as the Pennsylvania Lottery's 16 th Powerball jackpot winner, but older Pennsylvanians are also big winners," said Svitko. "Powerball and Power Play sales in 2012 have generated more than $105 million for important programs that benefit older Pennsylvanians."

Lottery-funded services for older adults include property tax and rent rebates, low-cost prescriptions, free and reduced-fare rides, long-term living services and in-home health and wellness services as well as a myriad of social, educational and recreational programs offered through the 52 Area Agencies on Aging and hundreds of senior centers across the state.
