$1M Powerball Prize for Pa. Parks & Rec. Workers

Parks and Recreation workers in the Lehigh Valley are $1 million richer after matching the right combination of Powerball numbers during Wednesday night's big drawing.

Pennsylvania Lottery officials tell NBC10.com 10 employees of Bethlehem's Department of Parks, Recreation and Public Property purchased the winning ticket with the hopes of scoring the $425 million jackpot.

The group matched all five of the drawing's white balls -- 1-17-35-49-54. But missed out on the red, No. 34, Powerball -- earning only a fraction of the grand prize.

Divided ten ways, and less 30 percent in taxes, each winner will clear $70,000.

As for the jackpot, one person was sold a winning ticket that matched all six numbers in Milpitas, Calif., near San Jose. That person has yet to come forward.
