Two $100k Powerball winners in PA
The last Powerball drawing on Wednesday, May 19, had winning numbers of 11 – 13 – 55 – 56 – 69 and a red Powerball of 4. Additionally, the Power Play multiplier drawn was 2x. Nationwide, two winners matched all five white balls from North Carolina and Michigan, winning $1 million.
However, there were a couple of big winners from Pennsylvania as well from Luzerne and Berks County. Both of the tickets matched four of the five white balls drawn and the red Powerball. Typically, a third-place prize wins $50,000. However, these two winners opted to tack on the $1 Power Play option. Thus, the winnings multiplied to $100,000.
Notably, both lottery retailers earn a $500 bonus for selling the winners. The retailers that sold the tickets were Turkey Hill Minit Markets:
- Turkey Hill located on 16 S. Main St. in Plains, PA.
- Turkey Hill located on 329 Main St. in Blandon, PA.
