A York County woman named Roxana Fidler has stepped forward to claim a $2.2 million Match 6 Lotto jackpot from the state lottery's Jan. 28 drawing.
Lottery spokesman Gary Miller said the woman declined to speak with the media about winning the county's largest lottery prize since a $30.2 million jackpot in 2008. Because she declined publicity, her name and county of residence was the only information he could provide, he said.
He said claims typically take between a month and six weeks to process before payment is made.
Fidler bought the winning ticket at Spring Garden Township's Mount Rose Beer and Soda, 1022 Mount Rose Ave., the Pennsylvania Lottery announced Tuesday.
Miller said Tuesday that Match 6 players had been waiting since November for the jackpot to be hit, an unusually long run for the game.
Fidler's ticket correctly matched all six winning numbers, 09-20-25-26-46-49, to win a jackpot of $2.2 million, minus 25 percent federal withholding.
Mount Rose Beer and Soda will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the ticket for the jackpot, but manager Tiffany Snedegar said owners have made no plans for the money.
Snedegar said Thursday she's hoping the winner is a regular customer, but the name didn't ring any bells.
"Maybe I just need to see the face," she said. "We're just glad we were able to change somebody's life."
Snedegar said the store sells lots of tickets, but it hasn't sold such a valuable winner in the 10 years she's worked there.
The $30.2 million win in 2008 was claimed by a couple who lived in Manchester Township, Myrna and Thomas Shearer, then 41 and 55 years old, respectively.
The couple identified themselves as small business owners but declined to name the business. They had been married for three years at the time of the win.
