PA Lottery Powerball ticket worth $100K sold in Wernersville as jackpot climbs to $1.09 Billion

The estimated Powerball Jackpot $1.09 billion; $527.3 million cash value for Wednesday’s drawing.

A Pennsylvania Lottery retailer in Wernersville sold a Powerball with Power Play ticket worth $100,000 for the Monday, April 1 drawing, as the jackpot rolled to an estimated annuity value of $1.09 billion, or $527.3 million cash, for the next drawing Wednesday, April 3.

The ticket matched four of the five white balls drawn, 19-24-40-42-56, and the red Powerball 23 to win $100,000, less applicable withholding. Without the $1 Power Play option, the ticket would have been worth $50,000. The Power Play multiplier drawn was two.
