WAYNE, Pa. - Someone in Chester County turned a $20 scratch-off purchase into a $1M life changing jackpot, according to Pennsylvania Lottery officials.
The lucky winner purchased a Jackpot Party scratch-off ticket at the Wawa on 215 West Lancaster Avenue in Wayne Township. Jackpot Party players can win up to $1M by matching their numbers to the winning numbers.
Southwest Pennsylvania has been a particularly lucky region of the state in the recent weeks. In early January, winning tickets totaling more than $6M were purchased in retailers across the region.
Among the big winners, a $3M scratch-off was sold at a Malvern-area Fine Wine and Good Spirits.
Lottery officials are reminding players to sign the back of their winning tickets. Players have up to a year from the games end date to claim their winnings.
