Patricia Chandler, of Upper Darby, Delaware County, today claimed a $77.4 million PowerballŪ jackpot from the Saturday, June 22, 2013 drawing.
Chandler's ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 13-19-23-33-57, and the red Powerball 28, to win a prize of a $131.5 million annuity, or $77.4 million cash, less 25 percent federal withholding.
Chandler, holder of the single jackpot-winning ticket from that drawing, elected to receive the cash prize totaling $77,412,904.79.
Chandler purchased the ticket at Federal Beer, 1440 Federal St., Philadelphia. The retailer earns a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
Chandler presented the Powerball ticket for validation at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County. Lottery officials confirmed it was the jackpot-winning ticket after examining the ticket and executing proprietary security measures.
