A Powerball ticket worth $1 million was sold at a beer distributor in the Kensington section of Philadelphia.

The ticket was from the Wednesday, September 7th drawing. It was sold at the Philadelphia Beer Company at 2525 East York Street.

The winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 03-05-18-27-54, but not the red Powerball 13.

The ticket was purchased with Power Play, which awards $1 million for a match-five prize, less 25-percent federal withholding.

The retailer will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the ticket.

Another winning ticket, worth $200,000, was sold in Luzerne County, Pa.

Lottery officials cannot confirm the identities of the Sept. 7 winners until the prizes are claimed and the tickets are validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

The Lottery encourages each holder of a winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery's seven area offices.

Claims may be filed at headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.

You can watch the Powerball drawing on Wednesday and Saturday during Action News at 11.
