A winning Powerball ticket worth $206.9 million has been sold in New Stanton, lottery officials said, marking the first time since 2018 that a jackpot has been won in Pennsylvania.
The ticket was sold at Sheetz on North Center Avenue. The store will receive a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket, which matched the five white balls drawn, 9-21-56-57-66, and the red 11 Powerball in Wednesday’s draw, officials said.
The jackpot was worth an estimated annuity value of $206.9 million, or $122.3 million in cash.
“The Pennsylvania Lottery congratulates the grand prize winner and our retailer on the sale of this big Powerball jackpot winning ticket,” said Drew Svitko, Executive Director of the Lottery.
Sheetz officials did not immediately return an email seeking comment.
WINNERS: PLAN CAREFULLY

The last time the jackpot was won was June 29, when a ticket worth $366.7 million was sold in Vermont.
For Pennsylvanians, this week’s winning ticket marks the first time a ticket has been sold in the state since a lucky Lancaster winner took home $456.8 million four years ago.
The jackpot is now reset to an estimated annuity value of $20 million, or $11.8 million in cash, for the next draw on Saturday.
The winners, who are not known until the prizes have been claimed and the tickets have been validated, have one year from the data of the draw to claim the prizes.
