Lucky Beer Distributor indeed. That's the name of the retailer, at 39 Snyder Ave. in South Philadelphia, where someone bought a Cash 5 ticket worth a record $1,685,206 - before taxes. The ticket matched all five numbers that came up Tuesday night: 10, 27, 31, 32, and 38.
The win broke the mark for a single ticket set early this year, when Ronald Flickinger of Somerset County won $1,570,330 in the Jan. 9 drawing. The biggest Cash 5 jackpot was $1,867,253 from the April 15, 2008, drawing, but two winners had to split it - Wendell Reynolds of Upper Darby and Agnes Makarewicz of Sugarloaf, Luzerne County. - Peter Mucha
