Didn't win the mega Mega Millions jackpot? You might still be a mega-millionaire after Wednesday night's Powerball drawing.
The only ticket for the Aug. 3, 2022, Powerball draw of $206.9 million matching the winning numbers of 9, 21, 56, 57, 66 with the Powerball of 11 was sold in Pennsylvania, Powerball said.
The Pennsylvania Lottery later revealed the jackpot-winning ticket matching all six numbers was sold at the Sheetz at 205 North Center Ave. in New Stanton, Westmoreland County. The western Pennsylvania Sheetz store gets $100,000 for selling the big winner.
The winner can take the estimated annuity of nearly $207 million paid out over 30 years or opt for a lump sum payment of $122.3 million, Powerball said. Of course, those prizes are before taxes are taken out.
“The Pennsylvania Lottery congratulates the big winner and our retailer for selling this big Powerball jackpot-winning ticket,” Pennsylvania Lottery executive director Drew Svitko said.
That jackpot is still impressive, despite paling in comparison to last week's $1.337B Mega Millions jackpot, where a ticket bought in Illinois matched all the numbers.
And, even if you didn't hit the jackpot, still check your tickets. A $1 million ticket in that same mega Mega Millions jackpot was sold in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
Powerball is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
"The last time the Powerball® jackpot was won in Pennsylvania was back in March of 2018, when a $456.7 million jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Lancaster County," the Pennsylvania Lottery said.
The winner has one year to come forward and claim the prize. Lotto officials suggest winners sign the back of the ticket.
