Powerball ticket worth $100K sold at local Rutter's

Staff Report

A Rutter’s Farm Store in Manchester Township has at least one very satisfied customer.


The store at 509 Greenbrier Road sold a Powerball ticket for Wednesday night’s drawing that’s now worth $100,000, according to a Pennsylvania Lottery news release.

The ticket matched four of the five white balls drawn -- 02-03-40-50-62 -- but not the red Powerball 05. The buyer added a Power Play option for an extra dollar, boosting the winnings to $100,000 rather than the $50,000 because Wednesday’s multiplier was two.

Rutter’s Farm Stores will receive a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Whoever has the winning ticket should sign the back of the ticket right away, then call the Pennsylvania Lottery at (717) 702-8146 and file a claim at the lottery’s headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of seven area offices, according to the release.

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

No one hit the Powerball jackpot Wednesday. It now rolls to estimated $176 million Saturday’s drawing.
