The unclaimed winning ticket was sold by Shyam Newstand II, 100 S. 10th St., Philadelphia. The ticket matched four of the five white balls drawn, 07-15-39-40-57, and the red Powerball 12, to win a prize of $100,000, less applicable tax withholding. Without the $1 Power Play option, the ticket would have been worth $50,000. The Power Play multiplier drawn was two.

A prize claim must be filed with the PA Lottery by the end of the business day on Friday, November 20, 2020.

 

The Pennsylvania Lottery encourages claimants to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 1-800-692-7481 and file a timely claim at any of Lottery’s seven area offices. Currently, all PA Lottery area offices are open to the public between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., by appointment only. However, PA Lottery Headquarters in Middletown remains closed for visitors.

 

By law, unclaimed, expired lottery prizes remain in the Lottery Fund and are used to support programs benefiting older Pennsylvanians. Although some lotteries give players only 90 or 180 days to claim a prize, Pennsylvania Lottery draw game prizes may be claimed on a business day up to one year from the drawing date.

 

Players should check every ticket, every time, using self-service scanners found at retailers or with the Ticket Checker on the Lottery’s Official App. Sign tickets immediately for proof of ownership.
