Jackpot-winning Powerball ticket worth $131.5 million sold in Philadelphia

PowerballPowerball: Jackpot-winning Powerball ticket worth $131.5 million sold in Philadelphia

Rating:

MIDDLETOWN, PA — One jackpot-winning Powerball ticket worth $131.5 million from the June 22 drawing was sold at Federal Beer, 1440 Federal St., Philadelphia.

The ticket correctly matched all five white balls — 13, 19, 23, 33, and 57, with Powerball number 28 — to win a prize of a $131.5 million annuity, or $77.4 million cash, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The retailer will receive a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

"It seems Saturday night's 'Super Moon' shone down some 'super luck' on a fortunate Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball player," said Lottery Executive Director Todd Rucci. "This is the 17th Powerball jackpot-winning ticket sold by the Pennsylvania Lottery since we joined the multi-state game."

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 immediately sign the back of the ticket and store it in a safe place.

Then, during Lottery business hours, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County. Claims may be filed at headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Powerball jackpot reset to an estimated annuity value of $40 million, or $23.5 million cash, for the Wednesday, June 26, drawing.

      And they do not tax lottery winnings on the state level in PA. The winner, if they're from PA, will get to keep a few more millions hahaha I love that a lot! a few more millions. It is therapeutic to just say that.

      That money's gone fo ever

              After taxes, the winner would keep about 46.8 million dollars lump-sum or 36% of the annuity prize.

                      Congrats to the winner. I saw a video of the store owner Gary Patel and he was shocked and excited. Patel wants to use the $100,000 bonus to make sure his employees are happy and he wants to take a vacation and setup a college fund for his recently born twins.

                        Ejnoy that 'for half the price of the ticket' while it lasts.

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
