PHILADELPHIA, PA — A Powerball lottery ticket worth a whopping $100,000 remains unclaimed! Purchased in Philadelphia, this valuable piece of paper is on the verge of expiring. So, if you’ve been frequenting the Wawa at 2600 Penrose Avenue and playing the lottery around November last year, it’s time to rummage through your old tickets!
The winning numbers for the Wednesday, November 2, 2022, drawing were 2-11-22-35-60, with the red Powerball being 23. The lucky ticket matched four out of five white balls, catapulting its worth to $100,000, thanks to the Power Play option.
Without the Power Play, the ticket would have been worth $50,000. However, the buyer opted for the $1 Power Play, doubling the value when the multiplier drawn was two. Now that’s a smart play!
The Pennsylvania Lottery is urging the ticket holder to come forward before November 2, 2023. To claim your prize, sign the back of the ticket and contact the Lottery at 1-800-692-7481. Timely claims can be filed at any of the Lottery’s seven area offices, open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Appointments are recommended.
Remember, unclaimed prizes don’t just vanish into thin air. By law, they return to the Lottery Fund, which supports programs benefiting older Pennsylvanians. Unlike some lotteries that give players a mere 90 or 180 days to claim their winnings, the Pennsylvania Lottery offers up to a year from the drawing date.
So, don’t let your winnings go to waste. Check every ticket, every time! Use the self-service scanners at retailers or the Ticket Checker on the Lottery’s Official App. And remember to sign your tickets immediately for proof of ownership. Your fortune awaits you!
