Rutter's Proves Lucky for Lotto Players
YORK, Pa. -- Rutter's Farm Stores proved itself to be a lucky convenience store chain when its Jacobus, Pa., location sold a winning Match 6 Lotto ticket for the Pennsylvania Lottery's Sept. 13 drawing worth nearly $1.2 million. It was the second time this year that Rutter's sold a jackpot winner worth more than $1 million; the first, a Powerball ticket, was sold in mid-April at a Waynesboro, Pa., store.
The most recent winner matched all six winning numbers to claim the Match 6 jackpot, which had been growing since Aug. 2, the last time a ticket matched all six drawn numbers, according to the announcement.
The York, Pa.-based c-store chain has a history of lottery luck. In 2004, one of its stores sold a winning Powerball ticket worth $221.5 million, the largest Powerball jackpot in history at the time, the company stated. The prize was split with a second winner from South Carolina.
Rutter's offers all Pennsylvania Lottery terminal-based games as well as a variety of instant lottery games. The third generation family-owned business operates 56 locations in central Pennsylvania.
