For Wednesday, Aug. 26, the Powerball estimated jackpot keeps chugging along to $37 million. The cash value of the jackpot is $29.7 million.
As a recap, the last Powerball drawing on Saturday, Aug. 22, yielded winning numbers of 19 – 30 – 36 – 42 – 66, with a red Powerball of 14 and Power Play multiplier of 3x. No one won the big jackpot or even matched all five white balls. The closest anyone got to winning were 11 tickets matching four white balls and the Powerball. Better yet, three of those opted for the $1 Power Play option.
PA winning Powerball ticket of $150,000
Right here in the Keystone State, a Pennsylvania Lottery retailer sold one of the winning Powerball tickets with that optional $1 Power Play boosting the prize to $150,000 rather than just $50,000. Lucky, indeed.
Particularly, this ticket matched 19 – 30 – 36 – 42 – 66, with the Powerball 14.
And that’s not all. The lottery retailer that sold the ticket, Carone’s Market at 1010 S. Mountain Boulevard, Mountain Top, earns a $500 bonus just for selling it.
In fact, in the Aug. 22 drawing, more than 18,100 PA Lottery winning Powerball tickets won with more than 5,600, including the Power Play multiplier.
