Middletown, PA – A Pennsylvania Lottery retailer in Westmoreland County sold a winning Powerball® jackpot ticket worth $206.9 million for the Wednesday, August 3 drawing.
The ticket matched all five white balls drawn, 9-21-56-57-66, and the red Powerball 11, to win a jackpot worth an estimated annuity value of $206.9 million, or $122.3 million cash, less applicable withholding.
Sheetz, 205 North Center Avenue, New Stanton, earns a $100,000 selling bonus for selling the winning ticket.
“The Pennsylvania Lottery congratulates the big winner and our retailer for selling this big Powerball jackpot-winning ticket,” said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “Thanks to our network of almost 10,000 retailers and players across Pennsylvania, over the past 50 years the Lottery has been able to fulfill its mission of responsibly generating funds for programs that benefit older Pennsylvanians.”
