$150k PA Powerball ticket expiring soon
The PA Lottery announced that a Powerball with Power Play ticket is nearing expiration soon. In particular, the ticket was sold for the June 20, 2020 drawing.
Hallers General Store located on 632 Elm St. in Tionesta sold the winner. As a reminder, the winning numbers for that drawing were 10 – 31 – 41 – 63 – 67 with a red Powerball of 5. This winner matched four of the five white balls drawn, which is typically worth $50,000. However, this ticket added on the Power Play multiplier, which was three. Thus, the prize multiplied to $150,000.
Be sure to check any Powerball tickets as this unclaimed winner must be filed with the PA Lottery by the conclusion of the business day on Friday, June 18, 2021.
Should no winner step forward, unclaimed and expired prizes remain in the Lottery Fund. Remember that the Lottery Fund benefits older Pennsylvanians and state-programs supporting senior citizens.
