PA Lottery Sells Powerball Ticket Worth $2 Million in Cumberland County

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.


One Powerball ticket worth $2 million from the March 1 drawing was sold at Smoker’s Express, 200 S. Spring Garden St., Carlisle, Cumberland County.


The winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls drawn, 03-08-25-30-47, but not the red Powerball 13, and added Power Play®, which sets the prize at $2 million, less 25 percent federal withholding. Without purchasing the $1 Power Play option, this winning ticket would have been worth $1 million.


The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling this 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 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices and at headquarters from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.


More than 29,899 other Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball tickets won prizes of varying amounts in the March 1 drawing, including 7,434 winners who bought the Power Play feature and multiplied their prize by four.


In the 2012-13 fiscal year, in addition to awarding nearly $40.3 million in prizes to Cumberland County winners, the Pennsylvania Lottery contributed more than $15.9 million to programs serving the county’s older residents.


The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday, March 5, reset to an annuity value of $40 million or a $23 million cash prize.
