Shop owner sells himself winning lottery ticket

BELLE VERNON, Pa. (AP) -- A shop owner in western Pennsylvania has sold himself a winning $1.8 million lottery ticket - and as the seller of the ticket, he'll get an extra $10,000.

Ron Rea owns Tobacco World stores in Uniontown and Belle Vernon. He bought the winning ticket for the Nov. 18 Match 6 Lotto drawing at the Belle Vernon store.

Rea says he doesn't play the lottery's Daily Number, but he spends about $20 a day on tickets for games with higher odds, telling the Herald-Standard of Uniontown, "If you hit, your life's changed."

Rea's ticket was worth $1,782,432. A lottery spokeswoman confirmed Rea's claim to the winning ticket.

The 68-year-old Rea says the winnings will help him and his wife of 38 years, Rita, build their retirement funds.

Good for them !! cheers
