Penn. Super 6 Lotto winner presented with $36 million check

Pennsylvania LotteryPennsylvania Lottery: Penn. Super 6 Lotto winner presented with $36 million check

An Annville, Pennsylvania woman was presented with a check for more than $36 million for matching all six numbers in the Super 6 lottery drawing earlier this month.

Tanya Marie Belair, 29, a biologist for Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, matched the winning numbers in the Pennsylvania Lottery's Super 6 drawing on Oct. 17.  She said she will work with a team of financial and legal advisers to decide how to invest her winnings.

"I am happy, surprised and grateful to be the winner of this huge lottery payoff," Belair said in a statement.

She chose the cash option for her winnings and received a check for $36,184,544, less 25 percent federal withholding, rather than a $61 million, 25-year annuity.

The $61 million jackpot ranked third among top Super 6 jackpots and was sixth-highest among all jackpots in the history of the Pennsylvania Lottery, officials said.

Could be the last ever Stupid-6 jackpot winner.
