It's been a lucky week for South Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware, with first- or second-place wins totalling more than $3.5 million.
Thursday night, a Jersey Cash 5 jackpot of $428,088 was split by tickets sold in Camden and Burlington Counties. Each had all the numbers drawn: 2, 4, 5, 13 and 29. They were sold at the Dollar Mart at 400 JFK Way in Willingboro, and at the 7-11 at 6001 Westfield Ave. in Pennsauken.
Sunday, a Jersey Cash 5 jackpot of $614,894 was shared by two tickets, one sold at a Shoprite at 400 E. Evesham Rd. in Cherry Hill, the other at Pine Bay Liquors in Little Egg Harbor, Ocean County.
Monday, Philadelphia had an even bigger win. A Match 6 ticket did just that, by having 23, 25, 27, 39, 42 and 44, to score a $1.23 million jackpot, less taxes, of course. It was sold at Cornerstone Newsstand, Eighth and Chestnut Streets.
Then came a couple more wins in the wider region.
Tonight's Mega Millions jackpot is worth $100 million because nobody matched all the numbers drawn Tuesday night. But someone won $1 million at a Tobacco RoadX store in Mount Pocono, Monroe County, for matching the first five numbers, 7, 21, 29, 35 and 49, while having the Megaplier multiplier option. The ticket missed only the Mega Ball of 39.
That same night, a Cash 5 ticket purchased in Lehigh County won $225,000 for matching all five numbers drawn - 5, 19, 20, 33 and 42. The retailer: DnD Market and Deli, 252 Race St. in Catasauqua.
Wednesday night, $200,000 was won in Delaware, as Powerball's jackpot rolled over to $67 million for Saturday's drawing. Shore Stop in Townsend sold the winning ticket.
