Horsham Wawa Sells Second $1 Million Lottery Ticket in Three Weeks

The Pennsylvania Lottery has announced that a $1 million Powerball lottery ticket was sold at a Wawa in Horsham Township earlier this week.

According to the release, the winning ticket matched all five white balls during Wednesday night’s drawing, 02-06-18-36-37, to win $1 million. The Wawa, located at 535 Horsham Road, will earn a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The local winner has not been identified at this time.

A jackpot-winning Powerball® ticket for the August 12 drawing was sold in Florida. The jackpot-winning ticket was worth an estimated annuity value of $168.5 million, or $140.1 million cash. The jackpot had been rolling since June 10, 2020 when the last jackpot, worth $22 million, was won in Wisconsin.

This is the second time since July 27 that a ticket sale at the Horsham Wawa turned its purchaser into a millionaire. On July 28, the Pennsylvania Lottery announced that the same location sold a $1.5 million Diamon Mine Fast Play.

The Horsham Wawa wasn’t the only local store to sell a winning ticket to Wednesday night’s drawing. A second release from the Pennsylvania Lottery states that a Wawa along the 200 block of York Road in Willow Grove sold a $100,000 winning ticket which matched four of the five white balls drawn, as well as the red Powerball.

Where to Play

Florida Lottery games are designed to be a fun, low-cost form of entertainment with the added benefit of helping fund education. While most of our players enjoy the fun and entertainment of playing our games, for some, gambling of any kind can be a problem.

Based on a 2016 Survey of Problem Gambling Services, conducted by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG), an estimated 1.1% of Florida adults are believed to have gambling-related problems. And while this is among the lowest per capita of all states in the nation, people with this problem cannot safely manage any kind of wagering.

To assist individuals and families struggling with addiction, the Florida Lottery encourages them to contact the Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling (FCCG), which offers a variety of free services to callers based on the needs of the individual. Callers are given the opportunity to share about the problems they are experiencing so they may be connected with the appropriate resources. Their multilingual Helpline number is: 888-ADMIT IT (888-236-4848)
