Pennsylvania LotteryPennsylvania Lottery: Two $1M Pennsylvania Lottery raffle jackpots claimed

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — Two of the four top-prize winners from the Pennsylvania Lottery's Jan. 3 Millionaire Raffle drawing have come forward to claim their $1 million prizes.

A complete list of the raffle's winning numbers is available on Lottery Post's Pennsylvania Lottery Results page (www.lotterypost.com/results/pa).

Wayne A. Smith of South Williamsport, Lycoming County, and James Kreger of Liberty, Tioga County, each won $1 million in the drawing. Smith and Kreger presented their winning tickets for validation at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, earlier this week. Lottery officials confirmed each was a top-prize winning ticket from the raffle drawing.

Smith purchased his winning ticket at Bittner's General Store, 68 Route 14 Highway, Trout Run, Lycoming County. Kreger purchased his ticket at Exxon Liberty in RR 1, Liberty, Tioga County.

Two top-prize raffle tickets remain unclaimed.

The tickets were purchased at Puff 'n' Snuff, 129 S. Main St., Lewistown, Mifflin County, and On The Go Market, 2873 W. Liberty Ave., Pittsburgh, Allegheny County.

Each store will receive a $5,000 bonus from the Pennsylvania Lottery for selling the winning raffle tickets.

Millionaire Raffle million-dollar jackpots must be claimed by presenting a winning ticket at Pennsylvania Lottery headquarters or at any of the Lottery's seven regional offices.

The four $100,000 second prizes can be claimed at any of the Lottery's seven area offices or any licensed Pennsylvania Lottery retailer. Claims may be filed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Lottery headquarters and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.

Holders of raffle tickets worth $1,000 and $100 may claim winnings at local Lottery retailers.

The four $1 million top-prize raffle ticket numbers selected were 00019427, 00052620, 00211264 and 00481893. The four $100,000 second-prize raffle ticket numbers were 00010166, 00041162, 00057855 and 00246558.

A total of 6,000 prizes worth $5,089,200 were awarded to raffle ticket numbers selected from a pool of 500,000 tickets sold between Oct. 27 and Dec. 27, 2008.

Thanks to Julius May for the tip.

Congratulations to the lucky winners!

 

Can anyone tell me why they always tell you what county the town is in when Pennsylvania is in the news?

    Maybe it's the lottery's way of offering at least a little privacy.  If so, that's a nice thing for them to do for the winners.

                  Congrats to the winners. Not sure why GA didn't have the raffle...

                  I'm thinking because it took a while (they even had to delay the drawing) to sell all the tickets for the last raffle drawing......it just wasn't nearly as popular as it was the 1st time (I think they had introduced the $500 Million Club $20 scratcher when they had the 2nd raffle and it was selling better than the raffle).

                  A Gold account on Lottery Post:  $4.95

                  A Millionaire Jumbo Bucks scratcher:  $20

                  Airfare and hotel in March 2007 to see The Price Is Right before Bob Barker retired:  $600-something
