A group of SEPTA workers did indeed win the April 25 Powerball jackpot, the Pennsylvania Lottery will officially confirm on Friday, according to sources.
A week ago, officials held a news conference at the Newsstand at the Gallery to reveal the winning ticket had been sold there.
By midafternoon, reports were spreading that 48 jubilant SEPTA employees believed their office pool had the winning ticket.
The jackpot was worth $172.7 million in 30 annual payments, or $107.5 million cash.
Before taxes, of course.
