Elmer Crone Jr., 69, might be happy to be Pennsylvania's newest millionaire.
He is apparently not happy with all the attention the win has brought him, however.
On Monday, the state Department of Revenue announced that Crone had won $5.9 million in the largest Match 6 payoff to date in the game's 16-month history.
Crone lives in a secluded area in Carroll Twp. in one of three homes off a narrow cul-de-sac in a stand of hardwoods.
A neighbor, who declined to give his name, said Crone packed up his car Monday and went to parts unknown after just one day of the kind of attention big lottery winners often receive.
"There must have been dozens of cars driving up into his driveway yesterday," the neighbor said.
"Sometimes there were four or five at a time. There were church groups, people looking for handouts, everybody you can think of."
When approached, the neighbor at first had said he didn't know Crone, and had no idea where he lived.
He eventually relented and said that Crone had been distressed over all the strangers showing up at his door.
"It was quite a strain on him. He hasn't been in the best of health, and it was a lot to deal with," he said. After a moment, he added: "Still, I wouldn't mind being Elmer Crone."
Crone bought his winning ticket at the Giant Food Store on Route 15 in Carroll Twp.
Crone won $5,858,436 -- the largest Match 6 lotto jackpot ever -- by matching all six winning numbers (29-30-34-40-43-46) in the May 3 drawing.
Crone won the 11th jackpot since the Match 6 game's debut Jan. 30, 2004. In total, Match 6 lotto has paid out more than $88 million in cash prizes to more than 17.8 million winners.
The winning Lucky for Life Lotto ticket also was sold last week; one ticket matched all six winning numbers in the May 4 drawing.
That top prize, $3,000 a month for life, has not been claimed.
Since its inception 33 years ago, the Lottery has contributed more than $14.6 billion to various programs.
Among those are property tax and rent rebates; free and reduced-fare transit; the low-cost prescription drug programs PACE and PACENET; and the 52 Area Agencies on Aging, including 650 full- and part-time senior centers throughout Pennsylvania.
