READING, Pa. -

People are apparently hoping lightning will strike twice after a winning lottery ticket was sold at a convenience store in Reading.

Someone bought a Cash 5 ticket worth $1.3 million at the Citgo in the 200 block of Buttonwood Street, Pennsylvania Lottery officials announced Tuesday.

The ticket correctly matched all five numbers in Friday night's drawing.

The winner has not yet come forward, but the store said it has been selling more tickets as word about the winning ticket gets out.

"I think its great. Pennsylvania, in general, hasn't really had that many major jackpots, so I think it's great that our store to be the first one around this area to have a jackpot winner," said Gagandeep Singh, the store owner's nephew.

The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
