Two winning lottery tickets for two separate games were sold at two Pittsburgh businesses.

On Friday, Faber Coe & Gregg at 500 Grant St. in Downtown Pittsburgh sold a Chili Pepper Payout ticket worth $114,690.

On Sept. 17, a Cash 5 ticket worth $62,500 was sold at the Quick Stop at 3349 Liberty Ave., Lawrenceville.

Chili Pepper Payout is a $5 Fast Play game that offers 20 progressive top prizes starting at $50,000, according to the Pennsylvania Lottery. Fast Play games are similar to Scratch-Off games, but without the need to scratch a ticket or wait for a drawing. They print on-demand from a Lottery sales terminal or self-service touchscreen vending terminal, the Lottery said.

The Cash 5 winner will split a $125,000 jackpot with another person who purchased a winning ticket, the Lottery said. Both tickets matched all five balls drawn — 03-15-24-35-42 — to win $62,500 each.

The other winning ticket was sold at a Turkey Hill store in Lancaster County’s Elizabethtown.

The Lottery said the winners should sign the tickets, call the Lottery at 1-800-692-7481 and file claims 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.
