$2 million ticket bought in Cedar Rapids, lottery says

Chino Hills Powerball Winner Remains Mystery

Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

A Pennsylvania lottery player won $1 million in this weekend's Powerball drawing.

Powerball jackpot has reached $333 million, with a cash value of $237 million for today's drawing following the draw on Wednesday, July 13, 2016.

Saturday's winning numbers were: 11-17-40-50-62 and Powerball 26. Powerball and Mega Millions drawings can be seen on WABC-TV stations. No ticket matched all six numbers so the jackpot for the July 20 drawing has grown to an estimated $361 million. Players must match all five numbers drawn plus the Powerball number to win the jackpot.

As far as the identity of the victor, Mary Neubauer, vice president of external relations for the Iowa Lottery, said the person must come to lottery headquarters in Clive to claim the prize money. The second prize will be won by matching five white balls in any order and this can only be claimed by cash only.

Jackpot prizes are paid in 30 annual installments or as a one-time, lump-sum payment.

This time it is a Cash 5 winning ticket worth $100,000 sold on March 18, somewhere in Fairfield County, lottery spokesman Derek Wong said. It is $1 million without Power Play.

Wednesday's jackpot is $4 million less than the largest Powerball jackpot ever won in Nebraska when a group of eight coworkers at the ConAgra Foods ham and corned beef plant in Lincoln split a $365 million jackpot in February 2006. Since ticket sales began in 1972, it has contributed more than $25.8 billion to fund property tax and rent rebates, transportation, care services, prescription assistance, and local services including senior centers and meals. The Power Play number was 2.
