Waynesboro, Franklin County, Pa.-based c-store sells ticket that results in big win.
Powerball players in and around Waynesboro, Pa. are abuzz this week with news of a seemingly unbreakable lucky streak; Rutter’s Farm Stores is, again, the site of a big lottery win.
The Pennsylvania Lottery announced this week that, though there were no jackpot winners from Saturday’s Powerball drawing, there were two million dollar-winning tickets sold, one of which was at Rutter’s at 141 S. Potomac St. in Waynesboro, Pa.
Each winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 14-15-16-19-24 to win the $1 million prize. To earn the Powerball jackpot, players must match all five white balls, plus the red Powerball.
News of the latest $1 million winner comes on the heels of another announcement by Rutter’s earlier this month that another big prize $250,000 to be exact, was drawn in the world record-setting Mega Millions jackpot at the Farm Store located on the Susquehanna Trail in York. That winner also matched five white balls, but not the yellow Mega Ball.
From April 2007 through April 2012, 26 tickets worth $100,000 or more were sold at Rutter’s stores. These 26 tickets translated into nearly $8.3 million in winnings for Rutter’s lottery customers.
In 2004, Rutter’s sold a winning ticket to what was, at the time, the largest Powerball jackpot in history totaling $221.5 million dollars. The prize was split with a second winner from South Carolina.
York-based Rutter’s Farm Stores offers all Pennsylvania Lottery terminal-based games as well as a variety of instant lottery games to hundreds of thousands of customers who visit its 56 convenience stores throughout Central Pennsylania each week.
