On Tuesday, Pennsylvania Lottery officials announced that a jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Bradford. The Cash 5 winning ticket is from the Monday drawing period and is worth a very respectable $225,000. The lucky player managed to successfully match all five balls.
Here is the jackpot-winning combination: 05, 19, 21, 23, 32.
The ticket was sold at the Uni-Mart at 76 Chestnut Street, Bradford. According to the Lottery officials, the retailer who sold the winning ticket will receive a bonus worth $500 just for selling it.
Currently, the ticket remains unclaimed. This means that as of right now, the winner is still unidentified.
Cash 5 winners have plenty of time to collect their winnings. The time window in which they can do so is one year from the drawing.
The Lottery officials advised the winner to sign the back of the ticket immediately. After that, the player was instructed to contact the Lottery by phone, using the following number: 717-702-8146.
Claims can be filed at any time between 8.30am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. Any of the Lottery's seven area offices are eligible, including the Lottery headquarters, which is located in Middletown, Dauphin County. For the headquarters, this can be done at any time between 8.00am and 4.00pm. Those players that won a lower amount of money can claim their prizes at any Lottery retailer.
Congratulations to the winners! Though $225,000 may not be the largest jackpot ever won, it is still more than enough to change anyone's life for the better.
The Lottery officials claim that the Pennsylvania Lottery contributed more than $4.6 million of funds to programs dedicated to older citizens in McKean County. Apart from that, they paid out more than $9.5 million in prize money to the winners in the county.
