Cash 5 Jackpot of $300,000 Won in Dauphin County

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.

In the 2016-17 fiscal year, the Pennsylvania Lottery awarded more than $65 million in prizes in Dauphin County and contributed more than $20.3 million to programs serving the county's older residents.

How to play Cash 5: Players pay $1 and select five numbers from 1 to 43. Players may select their own numbers using a Cash 5 playslip or opt for computer-selected quick picks. Players must match all five numbers drawn to win the jackpot. Players also win prizes for matching two, three or four winning numbers. Cash 5 is drawn each evening and tickets can be purchased up to seven draws (one week) in advance. Chances of winning the jackpot prize are 1 in 962,598; the overall chances of winning any prize are about 1 in 10.5.
