MIDDLETOWN — A $450,000 Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 jackpot from the Friday, March 17, drawing was split by two winning tickets sold in Luzerne and Washington counties.
Both tickets correctly matched all five balls drawn, 15-21-26-35-40, to each win $225,000, less applicable tax withholding.
The big winning tickets were sold by Convenient Food Mart, 366 Wyoming Ave., Kingston; and Rite Aid, 446 W. Main St., Monongahela, Washington County.
Each retailer earns a $500 selling bonus.
The prizes must be claimed and the tickets validated before the winners can be identified. Cash 5 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.
Players holding a jackpot-winning Cash 5 ticket should sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at any of Lottery’s seven area offices or at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County.
Claims may be filed Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at headquarters.
