Two winning Pennsylvania Lottery tickets were sold in Allegheny County.

A Match 6 ticket that won $1.8 million Wednesday was sold at Two Louie’s Market on Penn Avenue in the Strip District, and a Cash 5 ticket that won Wednesday’s drawing worth $500,000 was at the Smoker Friendly store on Golden Mile Highway in Plum.

“That’s so awesome,”said Lisa Kasinic, the owner of Two Louie’s Market.

As of Thursday morning, she didn’t know who bought the ticket.

“I can’t wait to see who it was,” Kasinic said. “We probably know 90 percent of our customers by name.”

Two Louie’s will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. Smoker Friendly will receive a $500 bonus for selling the winning Cash 5 ticket.

Manager Vince Orgera said he knew who won the drawing but wouldn’t give the name.

“We’re all excited about it for our customers,” Orgera said.

The winners have a year from the date of the drawing to claim the prize, according to the lottery.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
