Match 6 Ticket Worth $1.8 Million Sold In Delco

Posted: Updated:
DREXEL HILL, Pa. -

Someone in Delaware County is having a good end to the week, judging by the news just shared by the Pennsylvania Lottery.

One jackpot-winning Match 6 Lotto ticket worth $1.8 million was drawn Thursday, and it belongs to a patron of Peppy's Automotive Inc. in Drexel Hill.

The ticket sold at the auto shop located at 775 Burmont Road correctly matched all six winning numbers, 06-16-34-39-40-42, to win the jackpot, less a 25-percent federal withholding.

The retailer also has a reason to smile, as it gets a $10,000 bonus for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.

No one had matched all six winning numbers and won the jackpot since a Jan. 28 drawing, the lottery says.

Officials cannot confirm the identity of the jackpot winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Match 6 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

If you're that lucky person, you'll want to sign the back of the ticket, call the lottery and file a claim at any of its seven area offices.

The lottery notes that more than 81,700 other Match 6 players from Pennsylvania also won prizes in Thursday's drawing.
