One of four winning tickets to split $1.1 million  sold in Emporium

One of  four jackpot-winning Cash 5 tickets worth $275,000 each from the Aug. 28 drawing was sold at Emporium Pharmacy, 105 E. Fourth St., in Emporium, Cameron County. 

The other 3 tickets were sold in Allegheny, Lehigh, and Northhampton counties.

Each ticket correctly matched all five balls, 11-14-19-37-41, to split a jackpot of $1.1 million and win individual prizes of $275,000, less 25 percent federal withholding.

Each retailer will receive a $500 bonus for selling a winning ticket.

Lottery officials cannot confirm the identities of the winners until the prizes are claimed and the tickets are validated. Cash 5 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

The Lottery encourages each holder of a winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery's seven area offices.

Claims may be filed at headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.
