Pa. lottery ticket wins $149M, Phila. ticket wins $800K
A Mega Millions ticket sold in Pennsylvania hit the advertised jackpot of $149 million Tuesday night, because it matched all the numbers drawn: 10, 40, 63, 64, and 69, with a Mega Ball of 7.
A day earlier, a Cash 5 ticket sold in Philadelphia won $800,000.
The Mega Millions jackpot win is a first for Pennsylvania, which began offering the game in early 2010.
The winning ticket was sold at White Oak Gas & Grocery, 1100 Fawcett Ave., in McKeesport, near Pittsburgh.
As a lump sum, the top prize is worth about $80 million, before taxes.
A Michigan ticket was the only $1 million winner, for matching the first five numbers but not the Mega Ball.
The jackpot reverts to $15 million for the annuity, $8 million for the cash for Friday's drawing.
Cash 5. Philadelphia's Cash 5 winner matched all the numbers drawn Monday night: 3, 9, 17, 42 and 43. It was sold at the 7-Eleven at 1034 Washington Ave., at the southern edge of the city's Bella Vista section.
There was also a $700,000 Match 6 win in Delaware County.
Powerball. Tonight's jackpot is worth $114 million for the annuity, $67.9 million for the cash.
