The Pennsylvania Lottery has handed a $10,000 bonus to retailers who sold winning scratch-off tickets worth $5m and $3m in November.
Last month, $211.8m was claimed in prizes with the top prize worth $5m claimed by a player from Allegheny County, while three prizes worth $3m were claimed by players from Philadelphia, Allegheny, and Delaware counties.
Additionally, four prizes worth $1m were claimed by players from Clearfield, Dauphin, York, and Allegheny counties, and retailers of these winning tickets earned a $5,000 bonus.
Across Pennsylvania, other big prizes claimed during November included two prizes of $500,000, three prizes of $300,000, three prizes of $250,000, six prizes of $200,000 and seven prizes of $100,000.
Scratch-off tickets are distributed at random, meaning the Pennsylvania Lottery and its retailers do not know where winning tickets will be sold. The lottery only learns where winning tickets are sold after a prize has been claimed.
Meanwhile, the lottery revealed in October that it had set a new einstant record for the US ilottery industry after a Centre Country player scooped the progressive $1.6m prize from the Big Keystone Jackpot.
