Cash 5 Jackpot Split by Tickets Sold in Cambria, Schuylkill Counties

A $125,000 Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 jackpot from the Tuesday, October 25, drawing was split by two winning tickets sold in Cambria and Schuylkill counties.

Each ticket correctly matched all five balls drawn, 05-09-13-23-39, to each win $62,500, less applicable tax withholding. The winning tickets were sold by:

  • McGough’s Market, 2493 Portage St., Wilmore, Cambria County; and
  • Jean’s, 18 E. Centre St., Shenandoah, Schuylkill County.
The prizes must be claimed and the tickets validated before the winners can be identified. Cash 5 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.
