Jim Schiebel of Butler had a feeling this morning about a certain lottery ticket at the convenience store near Evans City, so he bought it.

Even the $20 price and a tight family budget didn’t dissuade him from the purchase.

That ticket turned out to be worth $1 million after he finished scratching it to reveal the prize.

After taxes he will be looking at more than $600,000, enough that he and his wife will be heading out on the honeymoon cruise they dreamed about but never took.
