$1 million winning lottery ticket purchased in Crawford County

Winner has yet to step forward after buying ticket at Vernon Township gas station

VERNON TOWNSHIP — Someone who bought a lottery ticket in Crawford County may be holding one of the state’s top five major prizes won in recent weeks, according to the Pennsylvania Lottery.

The ticket worth $1 million, bought before the Mega Millions jackpot reached $55 million for the June 10 drawing, was sold at Kwik Fill on Perry Highway in Vernon Township on Friday.

As of Monday afternoon, no one claimed the winning ticket, which correctly matched all five white balls, 12-29-37-49-72, but not the yellow Mega Ball 09, according to the Pennsylvania Lottery’s press office.

The ticket must be claimed and validated before lottery officials can identify the winner. Mega Millions winners are allowed one year from the drawing date to claim their prizes.

Lottery officials encourage the winning ticket holder to sign the back of the ticket, call the lottery at (717) 702-8146 and file a claim at any of the lottery’s seven offices, contact for which can be found at

Claims may be filed at lottery headquarters Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices, according to the lottery’s website.

Pennsylvania Lottery reports indicate more than $11 million has been awarded in previous prizes to Crawford County winners, contributing almost $10 million to programs serving the county’s older residents in the 2012-13 fiscal year.
