A $1 million Powerball ticket was recently sold at a beer distributer in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Beer Company at 2525 East York St., in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, sold a Powerball ticket with a Power Play, which awards $1 million for a match-five prize, according to lottery officials.
The winning ticket matched all five white balls, 03-05-18-27-54, but no the red Powerball 13.
Though lottery officials can’t confirm the winner’s identity until the prize is claimed, they say the winning ticket was announced Sept. 7.
