NORTH WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. -

A convenience store in Lehigh County has become a convenient place for winning lottery tickets.

A Powerball ticket worth $2 million was sold Saturday at the Hess Express on Route 309 in North Whitehall Township.

Lottery officials haven't released the winner's identity.

A Powerball ticket worth $1 million dollars was sold at the same store last month.

Lottery officials say this weekend's winner chose the "Power Play" option which doubled the prize from $1 million to $2 million.

That means the Hess Express gets a $10,000 bonus instead of $5,000.
