Powerball winners for May 8 drawing
As a reminder, the last drawing on Saturday, May 8, had winning numbers of 12 – 17 – 20 – 21 – 26 and a red Powerball of 8. Also the Power Play multiplier drawn was 3X.
Three new millionaires resulted from the last drawing. Two tickets matched all five white balls sold in Maryland and New York, good for $1 million. However, the other Powerball ticket sold in Iowa tacked on the $1 Power Play option, boosting the prize up to $2 million.
In Pennsylvania, two tickets sold for the last drawing won $150,000. Both tickets matched four of the five white balls drawn plus the Powerball. Usually, a third-place prize is worth $50,000. However, these two tickets added on the $1 Power Play option, which multiplied the prize to $150,000.
The two tickets were sold at:
- Turkey Hill located on 298 W. Lincoln Ave in Myerstown.
- Steppy’s Sports Bar & Grill located on 2912 Swede Road in East Norriton.
Both retailers earn a $500 bonus for selling the winners. In Pennsylvania, winners are not known until the prize is claimed.
