Pennsylvania Lottery has its Powerball Power Play winner for the recent draw.
East Norriton is the recent township in Montgomery County to have a major winner in the recent weekend draw of Powerball. The winner has won a sum of $150,000 after having purchased the lucky ticket from the Steppy’s Sports Bar in the township.
The winning number for this particular draw was 12,17,20,21,26 and the red Powerball was 8.
The winning ticket initially won the player $50,000 when they matched the four white balls out of five. It was the extra dollar they spent on the Power Play multiplier that tripled this amount for them and they won $150,000. The Power Play option acts as a booster to your luck, hence avid lottery players usually invest that extra dollar in it. Had it not been for the multiplier, this winner would be taking home just 50 grands home.
The sports bar too received a $500 commission since they were the ones that sold the winning ticket. This specific Steppy’s sports bar is situated on 2912 Swede Road in East Norriton.
The Powerball Jackpot for Wednesday has climbed to an estimated annuity of $168,000,000 and estimated cash of $117,000,000.
