PowerballPowerball: Lottery officials to name $86M Powerball winners

Who won last week's Powerball jackpot? That's the $86 million question — and Pennsylvania lottery officials have the answer.

Officials plan to announce the winners at a news conference Friday at lottery headquarters in Middletown.

The winning Powerball ticket was sold at a Turkey Hill convenience store in Lancaster County.

The jackpot from the Aug. 2 drawing is worth an $86.3 million annuity or $42.5 million cash — minus 25 percent in federal taxes.

    Winners?  Plural?  Sounds like it might be a pool.

        Good possibility!

          Looks like you were right.  It was a group of 14.

                If there's a picture of the winner/s wearing some Lottery Post apparels then there will be even more questions by LP members.

                In anticipation of my big MM win some day, I've already ordered a LP cap and golf shirt so I won't have to start a thread about winning, I'll just post a link to the news story with a picture of someone accepting the prize wearing a LP cap and shirt.

                 * you don't need to buy every combination, just the winning ones * 

                Thumbs Up
