JEANNETTE, Pa. (KDKA) - One lucky Pennsylvania Lottery player in Westmoreland County has won more than $2.3 million in prizes after having the winning Match 6 ticket. 

The Match 6 ticket correctly matched all six winning numbers which were 14-30-41-44-46-48 netting a jackpot of $2,340,000. 

According to the Pennsylvania Lottery, the winning ticket was sold at the Giant Eagle on 2000 Penny Lane Drive in Jeannette. As a prize, the Giant Eagle will get a $10,000 bonus for selling the ticket at their location. 

The winner of the $2.3 million Match 6 jackpot now has one year to claim their prize. 

Pittsburgh area prizes

This is the fifth million-dollar lottery prize won in our area so far this year. 

To start the year, two winners in the Pittsburgh area won $1 million dollars in the New Year's Millionaire Raffle drawing on January 6

Just days later in Murrysville, a man won a nearly $2 million jackpot playing the Cash 5 at the Shop 'n Save on William Penn Highway. 

Late in February, a 26-year-old lottery player in Butler County who won the $1 million New Year's Millionaire Raffle was presented with a commemorative check celebrating his win

Finally, two scratch-off tickets sold in Allegheny County within just days of one another won $3 million and $5 million, respectively. 

A bittersweet victory

Back in June, KDKA interviewed a lottery winner who took home a $1 million prize in Freeport. 

For Karen Coffman, it was a bittersweet victory as just two weeks after her victory, her husband died from a brain tumor

"Throughout the years, I kept telling him, 'You watch, one of these days, I am going to hit the million,'" Coffman said.  "You watch and see, and he would just laugh at me and say, 'Yeah, right.' And I was like, 'Come on, with my luck. You know I am going to hit.' And then whenever I hit, I said to him, I said, 'Rob, you can go ahead and go. You don't have to worry. I'll be ok.'"
