MIDDLETOWN, DAUPHIN COUNTY – Before the Powerball® jackpot rolled again to $108 million for the Oct. 9 drawing, one Powerball ticket worth $1 million from the Oct. 5 drawing was sold in Montgomery County.

The ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 11-12-17-39-40, but not the red Powerball 05, for a $1 million second-tier prize, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The retailer, Giant Food Store, 1824 Ridge Pike, Royersford, will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

The Lottery encourages the holder of the winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at any of Lottery’s seven area offices or at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County.

Claims may be filed Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at headquarters.

The Powerball jackpot grew to an estimated annuity value of $108 million, or $61.7 million cash, for the Wednesday, Oct. 9, drawing.

The Pennsylvania Lottery awarded more than $105.6 million in prizes to Montgomery County winners and contributed nearly $50.8 million to programs serving the county’s older residents in the 2011-12 fiscal year.
