Lucky week for PA lottery players
Pennsylvania had another big Powerball winner on Wednesday. The lucky Allegheny County player matched four of the five white balls plus the red Powerball. That winning combo would usually fetch a prize of $50,000. However, the lucky player paid an extra $1 for the Power Play option on their ticket, which in this case multiplied their prize to $150,000!
Two other players hit the Cash 5 with Quick Cash jackpot on March 31. The Northampton and Chester County winners will split the Grand Prize of over $1.3 million, taking home $667,230 each. If you played numbers in that drawing, check your tickets.
