One lucky ticket buyer hit the jackpot this past Saturday for the PA Lottery Cash 5 and hit every single number. The Valley News & Smoke Shop in Bensalem sold the winning ticket sometime shortly before May 11.
For selecting the winning 08-11-20-29-33 combination, the person has won $650,000. And as a reward for selling the ticket, the store located at 2337 Neshaminy Blvd will collect a $5,000 bonus.
The champion of chance must now sign the ticket and redeem it at a local Lottery office. If they wait longer than a year, their prize expires.
More than 45,000 other people in the state also won smaller prizes. Most stores selling tickets should be able to fulfill these smaller amounts.
All sales from the PA lottery benefit older adults and senior citizens. It has contributed about $29 billion toward property tax rebates, transportation, prescription medication, and other programs for seniors.
