Region’s on a roll with lottery wins

A ticket sold in Lancaster County won $1 million in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing.

A ticket sold in Lancaster County won $1 million in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing.

It's the fourth prize of six or more figures in just a week for Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Nobody matched all the numbers - 39, 44, 51, 52 and 54, with a Mega Ball of 13 - so the jackpot rolls over to $35 million for Friday's drawing.

The Lancaster County ticket was the only one nationwide to match the first five numbers, and the usual $250,000 payout was boosted to $1 million because the player also had the Megaplier prize-multiplying option.

It was purchased at A Jay's Mini Mart, 300 E. Main St., in Terre Hill, a town just south of the turnpike, about 10 miles northeast of Lancaster.

The other three big wins - including a Powerball jackpot - happened in Philadelphia or a suburban county.

Cash 5 jackpot won in Philadelphia. A ticket for the Monday, Dec. 10, drawing purchased at an Acme on Roosevelt Boulevard won $325,000 by matching all the numbers: 15, 17, 22, 29 and 36.

Cash 5 jackpot won in Delaware County. The same amount - $325,000 - was won by ticket purchased for the Dec. 7 drawing at a ShopRite on Chester Pike in Eddystone. It matched all five numbers: 16, 22, 26, 31 and 32.

Powerball jackpot worth $50 million won in Bucks County. A week ago, on Dec. 5, a ticket sold in Fairless Hills won a Powerball jackpot worth $50 million for the annuity, $33.1 million for the cash. The ticket matched all the numbers drawn: 13, 17, 19, 27 and 38, with a Powerball of 12. It was purchased at Levittown News & Tobacco, 411 S. Oxford Valley Road, in Fairless Hills.
