Meanwhile in Pennsylvania, the largest prize hit in the previous drawing was $100,000. Two different tickets, sold with the Power Play option, hit that prize by matching four of the five white balls, plus the red Powerball.
Power Play is the $1 ticket option that multiplies all prizes except for the jackpot.
One of those big winners was sold at Giant Eagle at 200 Station Street in McDonald, Washington County. The other was sold at a Walmart store located at 200 Kocher Lane in Elizabethville, Dauphin County.
