A $450,000 Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 jackpot from the Tuesday, May 17, drawing was split by two winning tickets sold in Erie and Mercer counties.

Each ticket correctly matched all five balls drawn, 04-10-15-17-43, to each win $225,000, less applicable tax withholding. The winning tickets were sold by two Country Fair stores: one at 3116 W. 26th St., Erie; and the other at 14 Hadley Road, Greenville, Mercer County. Each store earns a $500 selling bonus.

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.

The Lottery encourages each holder of a jackpot-winning ticket to 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 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at headquarters.

More than 47,700 other Cash 5 tickets won prizes of various amounts in the drawing, creating “Winners, winners – everywhere!” Players should check every ticket, every time. Lower-tier prizes may be claimed at Lottery retailers.

In Erie County, the Pennsylvania Lottery awarded more than $49.1 million in prizes to winners and provided more than $30.7 million to programs that benefit older residents during the 2014-15 fiscal year. In Mercer County, the Lottery awarded more than $27.9 million in prizes and contributed more than $13.8 million to programs serving the county’s older residents.
