Wednesday’s unclaimed $206.9M winning Powerball ticket was sold at a western PA Sheetz
The only winning ticket in Wednesday's $206.9 million Powerball drawing was sold in Pennsylvania, lottery officials said Thursday.
The ticket was sold at a Sheetz in Westmoreland County, the Pennsylvania Lottery said. The prize had yet to be claimed as of Thursday afternoon.
The winning numbers in the August 3 draw were 9, 21, 56, 57 and 66 and the Powerball number was 11.
The winner can choose to receive an estimated annuity of $206.9 million in 30 payments over 29 years or a lump sum of $122.3 million. Both options are pre-tax, Powerball said.
Lottery winnings in Pennsylvania are subject to state income tax at 3.07% and federal tax at 24%. The Pennsylvania Lottery automatically withholds taxes on winnings over $5,000.
For the sale of the lucky ticket, the Sheetz store at 205 N. Center Ave. in New Stanton a bonus of $100,000.
"The Pennsylvania Lottery congratulates the big winner and our retailer on the sale of this big Powerball jackpot winning ticket," Pennsylvania Lottery executive director Drew Svitko said in a statement.
The winner has one year from the date of drawing to claim the prize and may visit palottery.com for information on this process. The lottery encourages the winner to sign the back of the ticket.
Winner is unknown until prize has been claimed and ticket validated.
Lottery officials said the Powerball jackpot has increased since June 29, when a $366.7 million prize was won in Vermont.
"This latest jackpot run generated more than $18.3 million in revenue and $7.3 million in winnings benefiting older Pennsylvanians," the Pennsylvania Lottery said in a statement.
Wednesday's drawing was the state's first Powerball jackpot win since a $456.7 million ticket was sold in Lancaster County in 2018.
The jackpot for the next drawing Saturday has been reset to $20 million.
