Mifflinburg Sheetz sells $1 million ticket

Mifflinburg Sheetz Manager Andrea McEvoy pointed with pride to a sign indicating a $1 million winning Pennsylvania Powerball ticket was sold at her store.

MIFFLINBURG — A Pennsylvania Lottery retailer in Union County sold a Powerball ticket worth $1 million for the Saturday, Jan. 9, drawing.

The ticket matched all five white balls drawn, 14-26-38-45-46, to win $1 million, less applicable withholding.

Sheetz, 240 E. Chestnut St., Mifflinburg, earned a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

A lottery spokesperson confirmed Monday afternoon that the prize was claimed but the recipient chose to not have their name released to the news media. Winners are not known until prizes are claimed and tickets are validated.

More than 146,500 other Powerball tickets won prizes of various amounts in the drawing, including more than 33,700 tickets purchased with Power Play.

The Powerball jackpot rolled to an estimated annuity value of $550 million, or $411.4 million cash, for the next drawing on Wednesday, Jan. 13. If won, this would be the ninth-largest jackpot in Powerball history.
