Someone scratched off a $1 million winning lottery ticket at the Giant Food Store outside of Kennett Square.

EAST MARLBOROUGH—Pennsylvania Lottery officials Monday announced that the Giant Food Store in East Marlborough had a scratch-off $1 million winner.

In total,  Pennsylvania Lottery Scratch-Off winners claimed $14.5 million in prizes during April, including three top prizes worth $1 million claimed by players from Philadelphia, Erie and Delaware counties.

Additionally, the Chester County Giant Food Store was among three retailers who sold the $1 million winning tickets. They each received a bonus of $5,000. They are: Giant Food Store, 830 E. Baltimore Pike, Kennett Square, Chester Co.; Country Fair, 957 E. 26th St. Erie Co.; and Rite Aid, 4390 Richmond St., Philadelphia.

Across Pennsylvania, other big prizes claimed during April included nine prizes of $300,000, 13 prizes of $100,000; and three prizes worth more than $80,000 each.

The monthly winner list is posted in the Winners section of palottery.com. Not included on that list are the many Scratch-Off players who won prizes of less than $1,000.

Scratch-Off games currently offer prizes ranging from a free ticket to $3 million. Before playing any game, players should read and understand the rules, remaining prizes and specific chances of winning at palottery.com. Check tickets promptly and immediately claim winnings. Prizes expire one year from a Scratch-Off game’s end-sale date, which is posted on palottery.com.

The overall chances of winning any prize, printed on the back of each ticket, are stated across all tickets produced in a game, not by consecutive tickets sold per pack. Random distribution ensures the Pennsylvania Lottery and retailers do not know where winning tickets will be sold.
