$1 million Cash 5 lottery ticket sold in Fayette County

Paul Peirce

Tina Harris, owner of the Chalk Hill Market in rural Fayette County, said a $1 million jackpot-winning Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 ticket purchased Monday at the store is the largest winning ticket ever sold there.

“Oh my God! That’s awesome it was sold here, and good for whoever bought it too!” Harris said when called about selling the winning ticket.

Harris said the winner has not stepped forward.

She said the previous highest winning ticket sold at the store was approximately $100,000.

The winner matched all five balls drawn, 16-28-30-40-43. The store, at 2931 E. National Pike in Chalk Hill, about 8 miles southeast of Uniontown, will earn a $5,000 bonus for the sale, according to lottery officials.

Lottery officials recommended the ticket holder sign the ticket, call the lottery at 1-800-692-7481 and file a claim at the nearest lottery office.

More than 53,000 other Cash 5 tickets also won prizes in the drawing.

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.
