SOUTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The Pennsylvania Lottery says someone won a $1 million prize in last night's Powerball drawing.

The winning Powerball ticket, sold in South Philadelphia, correctly matched all five white balls, 02-22-32-45-56, but not the red Powerball 12, to win $1 million, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The ticket was sold at 9th and Moore Mini Market in the 1700 block of South 9th Street.

The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The winner becomes the Pennsylvania Lottery's third newly minted millionaire in a week.

A $2 million Powerball with Power Play ticket sold in Chester County for the August 19 drawing, and a $1 million Mega Millions ticket sold in Juniata County for the Aug. 21 drawing.

Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

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 lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of lottery's seven area offices.
