MIDDLETOWN – One jackpot-winning Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 ticket worth $500,000 was among 56,415 prize-winning tickets sold statewide for the Friday, Jan. 24, drawing.


Sold in Luzerne County, the ticket correctly matched all five balls, 05-14-17-19-38, to win a jackpot of $500,000, less 25 percent federal withholding.


The retailer, Beertown of Shickshinny, 11 W. Vine St., Shickshinny, earns a $500 selling bonus.


Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Cash 5 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.


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


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


In the 2012-13 fiscal year, in addition to awarding more than $82.2 million in prizes to winners across Luzerne County, the Pennsylvania Lottery contributed more than $39.7 million to programs serving older residents of the county.
