VIP PLAYERS CLUB

Westmoreland County Man Gets Life-Changing Text Message

Greensburg resident Tom Stover was working around his house when he got a text message from the PA Lottery. He had signed up to receive Cash 5 winning number alerts through the PA Lottery’s online VIP Players Club.

Comparing the numbers on his tickets to the results displayed on his phone, he found he had matched all five numbers -- winning a $500,000 prize.

“I was in awe, and had to go to my computer to double-check on the website.”

Winning over Memorial Day weekend, Tom continued to reassure himself that the quick-pick ticket he bought at All Aboard Express in Scottdale was the jackpot winning ticket.

“To put it in one, simple word: I’m ecstatic,” Tom exclaimed.

He plans to invest most of his winnings, but would also like to treat himself to a vacation in Hawaii and a new motorcycle.

Congratulations, Tom!
