Pennsylvania Lottery Sells Powerball® Ticket Worth $1 Million In Lycoming County; Feb. 6 Jackpot Now $208 Million

MIDDLETOWN, Pa., Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- While the Powerball® jackpot for the Feb. 6 drawing has grown to $208 million, one Powerball ticket worth $1 million from the Feb. 2 drawing was sold at Turkey Hill, 276 Route 87, Montoursville, Lycoming County.

The ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 11-16-33-40-41, but not the red Powerball 34, for a $1 million second-tier prize, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The retailer will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

The Lottery encourages the holder of the winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at any of Lottery's seven area offices or at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County.

Claims may be filed at headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.

The Powerball jackpot grew to an estimated annuity value of $208 million, or $130.7 million cash, for the Wednesday, Feb. 6, drawing.

In the 2011-12 fiscal year, the Pennsylvania Lottery awarded nearly $24.3 million in prizes to Lycoming County winners and contributed more than $11.9 million to programs serving the county's older residents.

How to play Powerball: Players pay $2 and select five white balls from the first set of 59 numbers plus a single red ball, the Powerball, from a second set of 35 numbers. Players may select their own numbers using a Powerball playslip, or they may opt for computer-selected quick picks. Players must match all five numbers drawn plus the Powerball number to win the jackpot. There also are eight additional ways for players to win a cash prize.

Powerball tickets are sold in 44 participating jurisdictions. Drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
