MIDDLETOWN — It’s looking like a very happy holiday season for a couple of people who played the lottery recently in Pennsylvania.

Two tickets for the Dec. 22 Powerball drawing are each worth $1 million. They correctly matched all five white balls, 01-18-35-39-44, but not the red Powerball 11.

The slips were sold at opposite ends of the state.

Pennsylvania lottery officials said one was bought at Giant Eagle supermarket in Baden, Beaver County.

They said the other was sold at Stauffer’s One Stop in Ringtown, Schuylkill County.

Winners get $1 million, minus 25 percent federal withholding. They have a year from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes.
