A scratch-off lottery ticket worth $3 million was sold at a Kittanning gas station.

The winning $3,000,000 Diamond Dazzler ticket was sold at the Sheetz at 100 Walnut St. The gas station will receive $10,000 for selling the winning ticket.

$3,000,000 Diamond Dazzler is a $30 game that offers five top prizes of $3 million, a news release from the Pennsylvania Lottery said. The chances of winning $3 million are 1 in 1.2 million.

It is the first $3 million prize awarded since the game launched in Pennsylvania on May 14, according to Ewa Dworakowski, Lottery spokeswoman.

Sheetz spokesman Nick Ruffner said the ticket continues a streak of good luck for Sheetz customers who won over $124 million in lottery cash prizes last year.

“Regular customers become just like family for our store teams and I know our Kittanning team joins me in congratulating the winner,” Ruffner said.

Scratch-off prizes expire one year from the game’s end-sale date posted at, according to the Lottery. The winner should immediately sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at the nearest Lottery office, the release said.

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.
