All Pennsylvania Millionaire Raffle prizes claimed

5 August 2008

ALIQUIPPA, Pennsylvania -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- A Washington County man who won $1 million in the Pennsylvania Lottery's July 5 Millionaire Raffle picked up his winnings today.

Lottery officials Terri Hopkins and Nick Rivelle presented a ceremonial check to Paul Gamber of Washington at Sheffield Delicatessen, Brodhead Road and Mill Street in Aliquippa, Beaver County, where he bought his winning ticket.

Gamber plans to make a few purchases with the money and invest the rest. A retired technology worker, Gamber also won $100 on a second raffle ticket he had purchased.

"I told everyone that I would win big someday," said Gamber of his Lottery play. "A million dollars is probably the best 'I told you so' that I can think of!"

All four of the $1 million winning Raffle tickets have been claimed and validated. Each selling retailer receives a $5,000 bonus.

In addition to Gamber, winners of $1 million are Sharon Burke of Camp Hill, Cumberland County, who purchased her winning ticket at Tenth Street Station in Lemoyne, Cumberland County; Helen Toto of Wilmington, Delaware, who purchased her winning ticket at Marrone's Delicatessen in West Grove, Chester County; and Marlin Greeninger of Lebanon, who purchased his winning ticket at Zweier's Foodkart in Lebanon, Lebanon County.

Each of the Raffle's $20 tickets offered a 1-in-125,000 chance of winning $1 million, the best odds ever offered by the Pennsylvania Lottery for winning a $1 million prize.

The winning raffle ticket numbers were randomly selected at 7 p.m. on July 5 during the Lottery's live drawing show. The four $1 million top-prize raffle ticket numbers selected were: 00351737, 00338908, 00234572, and 00110230. The four $100,000 second-prize raffle ticket numbers were: 00479671, 00260077, 00234155, and 00057161. A complete list of all 6,000 winning raffle ticket numbers is available at Lottery retail locations and at

The four $1 million top-prize raffle ticket numbers, four $100,000 second-prize ticket numbers, 100 prizes of $1,000 each, and 5,892 prizes of $100 each - a total of 6,000 prizes - came from a pool of 500,000 tickets that were sold between May 1 and July 4.
