Two Philadelphia-area tickets split a recent $325,000 Cash 5 jackpot, while tickets sold elsewhere in eastern Pennsylvania won big Powerball prizes over the weekend.
The lucky Cash 5 tickets matched all five numbers (7, 16, 19, 42 and 43) in Thursday's game, Pennsylvania Lottery officials said Monday.
The winners were purchased at the Top Star Express at 7532 Easton Road in Ottsville, Bucks County, and at Sam's Beer Distributor, located at 5647 Walnut St. in Philadelphia.
Each winner gets $162,500.
In Saturday's Powerball drawing, a ticket sold in Lancaster County won $1 million by matching the five white balls: 8, 17, 20, 27 and 52. The ticket missed the Powerball of 24, falling short of the $258 million jackpot.
That ticket was sold at the Sunoco at 529 W. Main St. in Ephrata.
Additionally, a Lehigh County ticket won $100,000 by matching four of the five white balls and the Powerball, and using the power play option. That ticket was purchased at the Wawa located at 1501 W. Gordon St. in Allentown.
All of the ticketholders have one year from the drawing date to claim their prizes.
No one hit Powerball's jackpot Saturday, so the top prize for Wednesday's drawing rises to $293 million for the annuity, or $185 million cash. Tickets sold in Florida and New York also won $1 million Saturday.
The jackpot for Mega Millions, another major multi-state game, is also on the rise after no one claimed the top prize Friday. The jackpot for Tuesday's drawing stands at $73 million, or $45 million cash.
