Powerball ticket worth $1M sold in Pittsburgh


A Powerball ticket worth $1 million from the March 19 drawing was sold in Pittsburgh, lottery officials announced.

The ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 02-19-23-34-43, but not the red Powerball 14, for a $1 million second-tier prize, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The retailer, Crafton Giant Eagle on 51 Walsh Road, will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The prize must be claimed and the ticket validated before the winner can be identified. 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.

The Powerball jackpot grew to an estimated annuity value of $96 million, or $55.1 million cash, for the Saturday, March 22, drawing.
