NEW STANTON, PA — Officials from the Pennsylvania Lottery held a special event yesterday at the Sheetz, 205 North Center Avenue, New Stanton, which sold the $206.9 million Powerball® jackpot-winning ticket for the Wednesday, August 3 drawing. The store receives a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The ticket matched all five white balls drawn, 9-21-56-57-66, and the red Powerball 11, to win a jackpot worth an estimated annuity value of $206.9 million, or $122.3 million cash, less applicable withholding.

“The Pennsylvania Lottery congratulates the lucky winner and Sheetz for selling this big winning jackpot ticket,” said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “Sheetz joins close to 10,000 of our valued retailer partners that help us sell Lottery products in a socially responsible way; products like our Draw games, Scratch-Offs and Keno. We appreciate all of our retailers’ support over the past 50 years. With their support we’re able to generate proceeds that help fund life-sustaining programs for older Pennsylvanians.”

Last week, the Pennsylvania Lottery announced that the Lottery generated a profit of nearly $1.2 billion to benefit older Pennsylvanians during the 2021-22 fiscal year. This is the 11th consecutive year the Lottery has generated more than $1 billion for senior programs, which include property tax and rent rebates, free and reduced-fare transportation, prescription assistance, and more.

The Powerball® jackpot had been rolling since June 29, 2022, when the last jackpot worth $366.7 million was won in Vermont. In Pennsylvania, this most recent jackpot run generated more than $18.3 million in sales, creating a profit of $7.3 million to benefit older Pennsylvanians.

The last time the Powerball® jackpot was won in Pennsylvania was back in March of 2018, when a $456.7 million jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Lancaster County.
