MIDDLETOWN, Pa., Jan. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A jackpot-winning Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 ticket sold in Dauphin County for the Tuesday, January 2, drawing matched all five balls drawn, 17-23-29-35-42, to win $300,000, less applicable withholding. Rutter's Farm Store, 2800 Vine St., Middletown, earns a $500 bonus for selling the big winning ticket.
