A $1 Million Powerball Lottery Ticket Was Sold in the Philly Suburbs
Nobody won Monday night's (July 17) $900 million Powerball drawing, but there's some VERY good news if you're in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
A ticket sold in Pennsylvania matched all five of the white balls that were drawn on Monday night meaning it won $1 million. It did not match the red Powerball.
It was not immediately clear where that ticket was sold. We should find out some more specifics today from the state's lottery officials about where the ticket was sold.
But if you bought your ticket in the Keystone State, check it now! You may be a millionaire. In fact, that ticket was sold in a Philadelphia suburb (keep scrolling to find out where).
The winning numbers were: 5, 8, 9, 17, and 41. The red Powerball was 21.
