Powerball ticket worth $100,000 sold in Drums nearing expiration


DRUMS — A Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball® with Power Play® ticket worth $100,000 that was sold in Luzerne County will soon expire if not claimed.

The ticket from the July 15, 2017 drawing was sold at Fuel On, 6 W. Butler Drive, Drums.

It matched four of the five white balls drawn, 09-40-63-64-66, and the red Powerball 17, to win $100,000, less applicable withholding. It was sold with the $1 Power Play option and also contained a separate, $8 winning play.

In Pennsylvania, draw game prizes expire one year from the drawing date. The ticket holder should sign the ticket and contact the nearest Lottery office. Winners can be identified only after prizes are claimed and tickets validated.

By law, expired lottery prizes remain in the Lottery Fund to pay for programs benefiting older Pennsylvanians. The vast majority of lottery prizes are claimed on time.

Players should promptly check every ticket, every time, using self-service scanners at retailers or with the ticket checker on the Lottery’s official mobile app.
