Talk about luck! A shop owner in Pennsylvania sold himself the winning $1.8 million lottery ticket and as the seller, he gets an additional $10,000. Ron Rea owns Tobacco World stores in Uniontown and Belle Vernon and he bought the winning Match 8 ticket at his store in Belle Vernon. He says he spends about $20 a day on tickets for games with high odds saying, "If you hit, your life's changed." It has. Rea is 68 and says he'll use the money to build retirement funds for him and his wife.
