Jackpot-Winning Ticket Sold in South Carolina
Winning Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball® tickets worth $2 million and $1 million for the Sept. 18 drawing were sold by retailers in Cumberland County and Philadelphia.
Both tickets correctly matched all five white balls drawn, 07-10-22-32-35, but not the red Powerball 19.
The ticket sold by Wegmans Food Market, 6416 Carlisle Pike, Mechanicsburg, Cumberland County, added Power Play®, which sets the prize at $2 million, less 25 percent federal withholding. The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The ticket sold by Loges Newsstand, 101 S. 18th Street, Philadelphia, won a prize of $1 million, less 25 percent federal withholding. This retailer earns a $5,000 selling bonus.
