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.

Earlier this month, a $225,000 Cash 5 jackpot was won in Lancaster and an $828,000 jackpot was won in Bucks County.

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.
