A customer at a GetGo in Carnegie won $800,000 on Saturday after purchasing a jackpot-winning lottery ticket.

The Pennsylvania Lottery reported that someone purchased a Cash 5 ticket at the gas station that matched all five of the winning numbers 05-07-15-24-26.

The odds of matching five out of five numbers is about one in a million, according to the lottery.

The GetGo that sold the winning ticket will earn a $5,000 bonus.

The identity of the ticket holder won’t be known until the ticket is redeemed. Christy Hooub, a GetGo employee who was working the day the ticket was sold, said the store doesn’t have any ideas as to who the winner might be. Hooub said it is really exciting to have sold the winning numbers.

“I think that’s pretty awesome,” she said. “It’s especially good for around the holidays.”

More than 47,800 other Cash 5 tickets also won prizes in the drawing, according to the Pennsylvania Lottery.

The lottery advises winners to sign the ticket, call the Lottery office at (800) 692-7481 and file a claim at the nearest Lottery office.
