Louisiana mother-of-three claims $2 million winning Powerball ticket

The retailer, Captain's Choice, 6900 Frankford Ave., Philadelphia, earns a $500 selling bonus.

Winning numbers were selected Wednesday night for a $115 million Powerball jackpot.

Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes. The jackpot winning ticket was claimed by a MA woman. The odds of winning the jackpot with a $1 ticket are 1-in-258.9 million.

There was no victor of the $115 million jackpot for the drawing held on Wednesday, Sept. 13.

In addition to the third-tier prizewinning ticket sold, there were 25,589 New Jersey players who took home an estimated $141,968 in prizes ranging from $4 to $300, according to Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedinger. 16 will be worth $132 million with a cash option of $85.1 million. Hebert won playing the digits of her family's birthdays. There also are eight additional ways for players to win a cash prize.

However, that player did not play the Power Play option, which would have increased their winnings to $2 million. Her winning ticket matched all five white ball numbers, winning $1 million, but the prize was doubled since Hebert added the $1 Power Play to her ticket. A 10X multiplier is available whenever the jackpot is $150 million or less.
