Officials with the Pennsylvania Lottery announced Monday that one Powerball ticket worth $1 million from Saturday's drawing was sold just outside Philadelphia.

The winning ticket was sold at D and I Beverage, located at 485 Baltimore Pike in Glen Mills, Delaware County.

"I received a call from the lotto this morning," said owner Steve Blaisse. "That's about as much as I know. Every time someone walks through the door, we're wondering if that's going to be the person."

Some customers are wondering themselves - enough to check those tickets a second time.

"My heart started racing," said Mark Ryan. "Unfortunately, I checked my ticket this morning so I know it wasn't me. I knew right away it wasn't me."

The winning ticket matched all five white balls, 04-13-39-46-51, but not the red Powerball 01, for a $1 million second-tier prize.

The Delaware County ticket is one of five $1 million Powerball tickets that matched five of the six winning numbers. The million-dollar tickets were sold in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, North Carolina and Florida.

Employees at D and I hope it's one of the regulars who won.

"There's a lot of people I am glad I know now, and I really hope they have some luck," said employee Brett Doutre, "that something can help them out. They are good people."

Nobody won the big Powerball jackpot Saturday night so now the jackpot's reached a whopping $305 million or $203.3 million cash, for the next drawing this Wednesday.

Powerball drawings can be seen every Wednesday and Saturday night during Action News at 11.

D and I customers hope that lightning strikes twice, and that a ticket bought here wins big again.

"$5000, that's the most I've ever heard of," said customer Pat Wilson. "A million was won here. That's wonderful. I hope I am the next one."

The owner gets a $5000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. If you are holding the winning ticket, sign the back and call the Pennsylvania Lottery.
