NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — A winning Powerball ticket worth $100,000 from the Saturday, September 23 drawing was sold in Northumberland County, according to the Pennsylvania Lottery.
The ticket correctly matched four of the five white balls drawn, 1-12-20-33-66, and the red Powerball 21 to win $100,000, less applicable withholding.
The ticket would’ve only been worth $50,000 without the $1 Power Play option. The Power Play multiplier was 2.
According to the Pennsylvania Lottery, the winning ticket was sold at Quick Shop, located at 1020 North Main St. in Watsontown. The shop earned a $500 bonus for the sale.
