One jackpot-winning Match 6 Lotto ticket worth $3.4 million from the Dec. 26 drawing was sold at Quick Mart Convenience Store, 850 Golden Drive, Blandon.

The ticket correctly matched all six winning numbers, 03-14-15-19-26-34, to win a jackpot of $3.4 million, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

More than 102,300 other Pennsylvania Lottery Match 6 players also won prizes in the Dec. 26 drawing.

In the 2012-13 fiscal year, in addition to awarding nearly $62.7 million in prizes to Berks County winners, the Pennsylvania Lottery contributed more than $30.1 million to programs serving the countys older residents.
