– A whopping seven Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 tickets split a $1 million jackpot from the Monday, May 22, drawing. The winning tickets were sold in Allegheny, Berks, Chester, Montgomery, Lackawanna, Washington and Westmoreland counties.
“It’s not unusual for a Cash 5 jackpot to be shared by two or three winning tickets, but a seven-way split is somewhat remarkable,” said Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko.
Each ticket correctly matched all five balls drawn, 15-16-22-28-32, to each win $142,857.50, less applicable tax withholding. The winning tickets were sold by:
- Shop ‘N Save, 2100 Washington Pike, Carnegie, Allegheny County;
- Top Star Express, 2588 Bernville Road, Reading, Berks County;
- Sunoco, 7 W. Lancaster Ave., Malvern, Chester County;
- Ana’s Corner Store, 3310 N. Wales Road, E. Norriton, Montgomery County;
- Convenient Food Mart, 101 S. Valley Ave., Olyphant, Lackawanna County;
- McDonald Pharmacy, 303 W. Barr St., McDonald, Washington County; and
- Ruff Creek Markets, 1300 S. Main St., Greensburg, Westmoreland County.
Winners can be identified only after the prizes are claimed and the tickets validated. Cash 5 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.
Anyone holding a jackpot-winning Cash 5 ticket should promptly sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at the nearest Lottery office
More than 76,300 other Cash 5 tickets won prizes of various amounts in the drawing. Players should check every ticket, every time. Lower-tier prizes may be claimed at Lottery retailers.
