BATAVIA – Someone is $3 million richer after buying the winning Lotto ticket in Saturday's drawing from the 7-Eleven store on Fabyan Parkway in Batavia.

As of Sunday afternoon, the winner had not come forth, said Amyn Katariwala, franchise owner of the store at 710 E. Fabyan Parkway.

"I'm really happy for the person who got it," he said.

One person matched all six winning numbers on the ticket. The numbers were: 01-03-05-12-17-18.

This is the first time the store has sold a ticket with such a big prize, Katariwala said.

"I'm hoping it will bring more people to the store," he said.
