BERWICK, Pa. -- Someone hit the largest Cash 5 lottery ticket in state history with a ticket sold in Columbia County.
The jackpot-winning Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 ticket worth $2,488,733 for the Friday, March 8, drawing was sold at Sheetz on Front Street in Berwick.
The ticket matched all five balls drawn -- 5, 6, 10, 12,15 -- to win the top prize.
Sheetz earns a $10,000 bonus for selling the big winning ticket.
The jackpot was the highest in the nearly 27-year history of Cash 5, the Pennsylvania Lottery’s longest-running jackpot game.
The previous record for the all-time high Cash 5 jackpot was $2 million. The $2 million record was tied last week for the drawing held on Thursday, March 7.
