The Pennsylvania Lottery says a Powerball ticket worth $2 million was sold at a convenience store in Rockledge Borough, Montgomery County.

The ticket matched all five white balls in the Saturday night's Powerball drawing, but not the red Powerball. The winning numbers were 14-18-28-29-57. The Powerball number was 08.

The ticket was sold at the Sunoco A-Plus Mini Market in the 800 block of Huntingdon Pike. The owner of the store will get a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Lottery officials say the ticket was purchased with Power Play, which earns a $2 million second-tier prize, minus a 25-percent federal withholding tax.

The winner has not yet come forward.

According to lottery rules, the winner has one year from the drawing date to claim the prize.

In a statement, the Lottery encouraged "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 Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery's seven area offices."

The Powerball jackpot now stands at $50 million for the drawing on Wednesday October 3.

Powerball drawings can be seen on 6abc every Wednesday and Saturday night during Action News at 11.
