The Philadelphia area has had its share of lottery luck over the last week.
The biggest news, of course, was an Upper Darby woman, Patricia Chandler, claiming a $77 million cash jackpot in Powerball.
But four other area tickets have collectively scored more than $2 million since July 25. Add a win at the Shore and it’s five tickets and $2.5 million.
Here’s the rundown.
$1 million won in Philadelphia. On Wednesday night, nobody matched all of the Powerball numbers -- 8, 24, 39, 49 and 59, with a Powerball of 5 – sending the jackpot soaring to $290 million. Seven tickets, though, matched all but the Powerball, including one sold at Finest Deli, at 278 S. 52d St., in West Philadelphia. It won $1 million, as did tickets sold in New York, Connecticut and Florida. Oklahoma and Oregon tickets won $2 million for also having the prize-boosting Power Play option. One California ticket won $3 million under that state’s pari-mutuel system, even without the Power Play.
$262,383 won in Burlington County. Monday’s Jersey Cash 5 jackpot was won by a single ticket sold at One Stop Shoppe, 774 Eayrestown Rd., in Lumberton. It matched all the numbers: 2, 6, 17 , 37 and 39.
$1.14 million split by Montco, Berks tickets. The July 25 Pennsylvania Cash 5 jackpot was hit by two tickets, sold at the 7-Eleven at 301 S. Lewis Road in Limerick, and Your Bet at 3050 N. Fifth St. Highway in Reading. They matched all the numbers: 1, 3, 7, 28 and 29, to each win $572,808.50, less taxes.
$165,087 won in Atlantic County. The July 25 Jersey Cash 5 jackpot was hit by a single ticket sold at the 7-Eleven at 3800 Brigantine Blvd., in Brigantine. It matched all the numbers: 10, 16, 20, 33 and 36.
