MIDDLETOWN — The Pennsylvania Lottery recently awarded an online prize worth $100,000 on a Powerball with Power Play ticket to a player from Cambria County for the Wednesday, April 20, drawing.
The ticket matched four of the five white balls drawn, 20-30-45-55-56, and the red Powerball 14 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.
