Bealer bought the tickets from two different places in his hometown, the $1 million ticket came from a Shell Food Mart and the original ticket was bought at the 28th Street Citgo.
The instant game was a $1 Million Riches Game ticket, there are a further two $1 million prizes waiting to be won.
According to Bealer he paid off his bills with money from the first prize and that he plans to keep his $1 million prize in the bank.
