Store sells winning lottery ticket worth $1.3 million

READING, Pa. - A lottery ticket is floating around somewhere that's worth $1.3 million.

A Cash 5 ticket worth $1.3 million was sold at the Dollar and More store in the 400 block of Penn Street in downtown Reading.

The drawing was Wednesday night. The lucky winner matched all five numbers, officials said.

The store will receive $10,000 for selling the winning ticket.

The store's owner, George Sankari, said the money will help, since business has been slow.

"Cover my taxes and stuff like this," said Sankari.

The winner has one year to come forward and claim the prize.
