It’s not the winning 400 million dollar Powerball ticket, but it’s still a very large chunk of change.
The Wegmans in Mechanicsburg, Cumberland County sold a 2 million dollar ticket to one, or a few, very lucky customers.
The ticket sold matched all five white balls drawn but it missed the big jackpot by the red Powerball.
But still, a winner of this magnitude is a first for the store and for manager, Bob Finn.
“I saw it on the news this morning that there was a ticket sold in Pennsylvania, I had no idea it was our store,” says Finn.
Finn received a call from the Pennsylvania lottery association with the good news.
His question now is who might be the lucky winner.
“Lot of us are wondering if it’s an employee or if its one of our customers,” says Finn.
That person hasn’t come forward yet.
But customers who came and checked their tickets today haven’t been so lucky.
“4 dollars,” says Valerie Green as she laughs.
Valerie Green only plays the jackpot when the stakes are high.
This morning she thought she was feeling lucky.
“I’ve gotta check my numbers now, now, now, now, now, I’ve gotta check my numbers!” says Green.
Loyal lotto player and store employee, Tyler Scomak loses every week.
Having a winning store is a rush of adrenaline for him.
“I was amazed that we actually sold the ticket, I know I was working Sunday and I was thinking hmm maybe I sold it, you know but it’s great that we were able to sell something so huge,” says Scomak.
Besides Mechanicsburg, the another winning ticket worth 1 million was sold in Philadelphia.
The big 400 million dollar jackpot was sold in South Carolina.
