Nobody in Pennsylvania or New Jersey won the $758.7 million Powerball Wednesday night — sorry.  But in Pennsylvania, a $2 million winning ticket was sold at the Fresh & Quick in Catawissa, Columbia County. Catawissa has a population of around 1,500, so maybe the whole town chipped in.



Four $1 million winning tickets in Pennsylvania were sold at a 7-11 in Warminster, Weis Markets in Allentown, Darrenkamp’s Market in Mount Joy, and a Marathon across the state in Tarentum.

According to palottery.com, in total, $13 million was won by more than 485,000 players in Pennsylvania. None of the winners have come forward yet as they figure out how to avoid certain relatives and friends.


New Jersey also had two $1 million winning tickets after last night. They were sold at L&K Petroleums in Dorchester and the W & R Mini Market and Deli in Paterson.





“This amazing Powerball run was not only great fun for players, it produced tremendous new funding – more than $36 million – for programs that benefit older Pennsylvanians,” said Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “Congratulations to our many winners, and a heartfelt thank you to our players and retailers.”

The winning Powerball ticket was sold in Chicopee, Mass. It matched the five white balls drawn, 06-07-16-23-26, and the red Powerball, 04. The winner could either choose the final annuity value of $758.7 million, or a cash prize of $480.5 million.

Note to winner: Take the cash.
