Powerball Jackpot Ticket Worth $206.9 Million Sold in Pennsylvania

A Powerball ticket worth over $200 Million was sold in Pennsylvania.
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 Powerball® jackpot had been rolling since June 29, 2022, when the last jackpot worth $366.7 million was won in Vermont. In Pennsylvania, this recent jackpot run generated more than $18.3 million in sales, creating a profit of $7.3 million to benefit older Pennsylvanians.

The last time the Powerball jackpot was won in Pennsylvania was back in March of 2018, when a $456.7 million jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Lancaster County.
