$150,000 Powerball ticket sold in Dauphin County
A winning Powerball ticket worth $150,000 from the Wednesday, March 29, drawing was sold at Penn Jersey Food Mart, 5541 Route 209, in Lykens.
The ticket correctly matched four of the five white balls drawn, 08-15-31-36-62, and the red Powerball 11, to win $150,000, minus applicable tax withholding. It was sold with the $1 Power Play option, which boosted the prize to $150,000 instead of $50,000, because the drawn multiplier was three.
