Powerball winning ticket sold in Bucks County, Pennsylvania
What better place for a jackpot lottery ticket than Bucks County? A Cumberland Farms convenience store in the county near Philadelphia has sold a Powerball ticket worth more than 213 million dollars. Store manager Randy Boldizar says he thought it was a joke when an employee called yesterday morning with the news. The ticket holder hasn't come forward. Boldizar says it could be someone from New Jersey or someone who bought a ticket while just passing through but he hopes it's "a local person." Lottery officials say they don't expect to know the name of the winner for several weeks.
The winner has up to a year to claim the prize. The convenience store chain will receive 400-thousand dollars for selling the big bucks ticket.
