Pa lottery

A Pennsylvania Lottery retailer near Mohnton sold a Powerball ticket worth $100,000 for the Wednesday drawing, lottery officials announced Thursday.

The winning ticket was sold at Exxon Mart, 308 E. Wyomissing Ave. in Cumru Township. That earns a $500 bonus for the retailer.

The ticket matched four of the five white balls drawn, 4-9-17-27-38, and the red Powerball 18 to win $100,000, less applicable withholding. Without the $1 Power Play option, the ticket would have been worth half as much. The Power Play multiplier drawn was 2.

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, officials said.

More than 31,400 other Powerball tickets in Pennsylvania won prizes of various amounts in the drawing, including more than 8,800 tickets purchased with Power Play.

The Powerball jackpot rolled to an estimated annuity value of $238 million, or $159.8 million cash, for the next drawing, on Saturday.
