A couple of recent lottery jackpots landed in the suburbs, while the two biggest jackpots, Powerball and Mega Millions, got even bigger.
$500,000 won in Bucks County. The Pennsylvania Cash 5 jackpot was up to $1 million Sunday, when two tickets matched all the numbers drawn: 3, 11, 18, 29 and 41. They were sold at a Luk Oil at 225 Levittown Pkwy., in Levittown, and on the other side of the state at Circle K, 830 Darlington Rd., in Beaver Falls, Beaver County.
$227,226 won in Gloucester County. Two tickets hit all the numbers drawn for Thursday's Jersey Cash 5 drawing -- 8, 9, 12, 16 and 36 -- and one of them was sold in South Jersey, at the 7-Eleven at 340 N. Broadway in Pitman. The other was sold in Passaic County at Valley Spa, 61 E. Main St., Little Falls. The jackpot was $454,452.
Powerball jackpot up to $245 million. That's the total for 30 yearly installments, not counting taxes, because no one matched all of Saturday's numbers: 2, 19, 22, 26 and 45 with a Powerball of 24. An Illinois ticket won $2 million for matching the first five but not the Powerball, while having the Power Play prize-boosting option. Tickets sold in Illinois, Michigan and New Mexico won $1 million for matching the first five. The cash value for Wednesday's drawing: $136.3 million.
