Who Has $225,000 Lottery Ticket Sold in Emmaus?

Pa. lottery officials are waiting for the owner of a Cash 5 lottery ticket worth $225,000 to claim his/her prize.

The owner of a Cash 5 ticket worth $225,000 from the Feb. 24 drawing sold at Hess, 4002 Chestnut St., Emmaus hasn't claimed his/her prize yet, lottery officials told Patch on Thursday.

It sometimes takes a few weeks for the winner to come forward, they said.

The ticket correctly matched all five balls, 06-12-14-15-26, to win a jackpot of $225,000, less 25 percent federal withholding. The Hess store will get $500.

Cash 5 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

There's also another Cash 5 winner somewhere in our area. A ticket worth more than $371,000 from the Feb. 22 drawing was sold at Hess, 3640 Route 309, Orefield. That ticket correctly matched all five balls, 02-17-23-24-36, to win a jackpot of $371,418.50, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The Lottery encourages each holder of a 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.
