ST LOUIS (LALATE) – The Powerball winning numbers for May 8, 2013 went unpicked. So what will be the Powerball winning numbers for this Saturday May 11, 2013? Officials tell news that the winning ticket for Saturday’s draw will be worth an enormous two hundred seventy million dollars.
Last night’s Powerball winning numbers made one person happy. Officials tell news that one Powerball ticket for the May 8 drawing “was sold at Turkey Hill, 815 Quentin Road, Lebanon.” But there was a catch. In a news statement today, officials indicate that the “May 8 winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 21-22-26-30-57, but not the red Powerball 27, and added Power Play”. As per the Powerball rules, the game will roll over for another drawing this Saturday. The retailer who sold the Lebanon ticket last night “will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling this winning ticket”, officials tell news.
The Lebanon ticket hold has not come forward. Officials also tell news that they don’t know the person’s identify. “Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.” They added “The Lottery encourages the holder of the winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at any of Lottery’s seven area offices or at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County.”
And yet there were upwards of eight-five thousand Pennsylvania shoppers who also won smaller amounts from last night’s drawing. Officials tell news that “in addition to awarding more than $16.6 million in prizes to Lebanon County winners, the Pennsylvania Lottery contributed more than $9.7 million to programs serving the county’s older residents.”
So will you have the winning numbers this Saturday? If you get the numbers, you will pick up a two hundred seventy million win with a cash value of one hundred seventy-six million. There has been no winner since Pedro Quezada won in Passaic back on March 23, officials remind news. To date, the largest payout in U.S. history still remains the three tickets sold for the March 2013 Mega Millions $656 million win. UPDATE: MAY 11, 2013 – The winning numbers are 6,23,19,43,13 and the Powerball is 16
