Pennsylvania Lottery officials say one Powerball ticket worth $1 million from Wednesday night's drawing was sold at a deli in West Philadelphia.

The winning ticket, which matched all five white balls, 08-24-39-49-59, but not the red Powerball 05, was sold at Finest Deli, located at 278 South 52nd Street.

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

Lottery officials say the prize has not yet been claimed. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

The winner is encouraged to sign the back of the ticket and call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 to file a claim.

More than 90,000 other Pennsylvanians won prizes of varying amounts in last night's drawing. However, the jackpot is still growing - now at an estimated annuity value of $290 million for the Saturday, August 3rd drawing.

You can watch the drawing live Saturday night on 6abc during Action News at 11.
