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.

Winners can be identified only after prizes are claimed and tickets validated. Cash 5 prizes expire one year from the drawing date. Anyone holding a jackpot-winning Cash 5 ticket should sign the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at the nearest Lottery office.

More than 24,900 other Cash 5 tickets also won prizes in the drawing. Players should check every ticket, every time, and claim lower-tier prizes at a Lottery retailer.
