MIDDLETOWN, PA — The Pennsylvania Lottery announced a significant win for a Montgomery County resident. A jackpot-winning Match 6 Lotto ticket, worth $1.9 million, was sold at Pat’s Beverage in Pottstown. The winning numbers from the June 4 drawing were 3, 16, 18, 39, 40, and 47.

This victory not only brings fortune to the ticket holder but also rewards Pat’s Beverage with a $10,000 bonus for selling the lucky ticket. Such wins highlight the economic impact local businesses can experience through lottery sales.

The identity of the winner remains unknown until they claim their prize and validate the ticket. Winners have one year from the drawing date to claim their prizes. For those who purchased winning tickets, it is crucial to sign the back immediately to secure ownership. Online winnings automatically appear in a player’s account after the claim process completes.

Match 6 Lotto offered various payout tiers in this drawing. While one player matched all six numbers to clinch the $1.9 million jackpot, others benefited as well. Fourteen players matched five of six numbers, each earning $1,000. More than 700 players who matched four numbers received $20 each, and over 12,000 players took home $2 for matching three numbers.

These smaller prizes, though modest compared to the jackpot, demonstrate the broad appeal and accessibility of lottery games. They provide many participants with the excitement of winning and the encouragement to continue playing.

Lotteries like Match 6 play a vital role in state funding. Proceeds from ticket sales support various public programs, including senior citizen initiatives, which benefit from these funds. Thus, every ticket sold contributes to a larger community goal beyond personal gain.
