Powerball jackpot stands at $425 million; Odds not in your favor

One jackpot-winning Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 ticket worth $225,000 was among 31,039 prize-winning tickets sold statewide for the Monday, Dec. 2, drawing.

Sold in Mifflin County, the ticket correctly matched all five balls, 07-10-21-33-43, to win a jackpot of $225,000, less 25 percent federal withholding.

McVeytown Minit Mart, 5704 Route 522 South, McVeytown, earns a $500 selling bonus for selling the winning Cash 5 ticket.

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 $9.7 million in prizes to Mifflin County winners, the Pennsylvania Lottery contributed more than $5.7 million to programs serving the county’s older residents.
