Two tickets sold in Allegheny County won big prizes in the past week.

A Cash 5 ticket sold at the Giant Eagle on University Boulevard in Moon won the $500,000 jackpot. The ticket matched all five balls drawn in Monday's drawing (2-6-21-32-39).

A Powerball ticket sold at the Sheetz on Nicholson Road in Franklin Park matched four of the five white balls (14-25-35-58-69) and the red Powerball (24) to win a $100,000 prize. The ticket was sold with the $1 Power Play option, doubling the prize from $50,000 because the multiplier drawn was 2.

Neither ticket has been claimed. Winners have up to one year to do so.

Each retailer gets a $500 bonus for selling the winning tickets.

The Pennsylvania Lottery reported awarding more than $256.3 million in prizes in Allegheny County during the 2016-17 fiscal year. During the same period, the Lottery contributed $129.2 million to programs serving older residents, including property tax and rent rebates, transportation, prescription assistance, care services, senior centers and meal programs.

Holders of winning tickets should sign the ticket immediately, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at the nearest lottery office.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
