A Pennsylvania Lottery scratch-off ticket worth $5 million was recently sold at a 7-Eleven convenience store in South Philadelphia, officials said.
The Five Million Fabulous Fortune ticket was purchased at the store at 2301 West Passyunk Ave. The buyer of the $50 game received the top prize.
The 7-Eleven will get a $10,000 bonus for the sale of the winning ticket.
The prize is one of the largest among Pennsylvania Lottery scratch-off winners in Philadelphia in recent memory.
In December, a $2.4 million-winning Fast Play game ticket was sold at a Sunoco station in Roxborough, becoming the second prize of more than $1 million to be sold at that store in the last two years.
Last June, a $3 million-winning ticket was sold at a local market in the Grays Ferry section of the city. And in January of last year, in Bucks County, a $5 million-winning ticket was sold at a Wawa in Bensalem.
