In the Pennsylvania Lottery, a Dauphin County Family Wins a $1 Million Powerball


After purchasing 20 “quick pick” Powerball tickets, a Dauphin County family has won $1 million.

Woody Raptosh claims that on the day of the $2 billion Powerball drawing, he stopped at Turkey Hill on Allentown Boulevard in Harrisburg to purchase several tickets.

Raptosh said he didn’t understand he’d won until the next day.

Raptosh stated that he gave his daughter his ticket and they both checked to see if it was a winner.

“She screamed and said, ‘No way, no way!'” “It took me a while to read the numbers before I knew we had the winning ticket,” Woody explained.
