The single winning ticket for Wednesday's Powerball lottery was sold in Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Lottery announced Thursday.

One ticket worth $50 million Levittown News & Tobacco, 411 S. Oxford Valley Road, Fairless Hills, Bucks County, the lottery said.

The ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 13-17-19-27-38, and the red Powerball 12, to win a $50 million annuity, or $33,134,526.18 cash prize, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The retailer will receive a $100,000 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.

Lottery officials said the holder of the winning ticket should sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at (717) 702-8146 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery's seven area offices. Claims may be filed at headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.

Pennsylvania has sold 16 jackpot-winning tickets since joining Powerball, including Wednesday's winning ticket. Prior to last night, the most recent jackpot-winning ticket sold in Pennsylvania was for the April 25, 2012 drawing, when a group of SEPTA employees from the Philadelphia area purchased a $107.5 million (cash) winning ticket.
