MIDDLETOWN, Pa., Dec. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania Lottery Scratch-Offs winners claimed $158,227,695 in prizes during November, including two top prizes of $1 million won on the Merry Millions holiday game.
Those two winning tickets were sold by Quick Mart, 2509 Dunksferry Road, Bensalem, Bucks County and The Ave. Tobacco & Supply Company, 217 W. Girard Ave., Philadelphia.
Across Pennsylvania, other big scratch-offs prizes claimed during the month included:
- Seven prizes of $300,000 (various counties);
- One $250,000 prize (Delaware County); and
- Ten prizes of $100,000 (various counties).
Monthly winner lists posted in the Winners section of palottery.com include winners of $1,000 or more, although many prizes below that amount were won.
Scratch-Offs currently offer prizes ranging from a free ticket to $3 million. Before playing any game, players should read and understand the rules, prizes remaining and specific chances of winning found at palottery.com. Check tickets promptly and immediately claim winnings. Prizes expire one year from a Scratch-Off game's end-sale date posted at 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 and not by consecutive tickets sold per pack. Random distribution ensures the Pennsylvania Lottery and retailers do not know where winning tickets will be sold.
