The ticket was mailed to lottery headquarters in Middletown where officials confirmed Stover as the winner."We just encourage players to please check your tickets," said Ed Trees, a Pennsylvania Lottery representative.

"The lottery certainly does not want any prize, especially a prize of this size, to go unclaimed."So far, Stover is not doing interviews and she chose not to do a public check presentation.
