Cash 5 ticket sold at New Kensington gas station splits $1.4 million jackpot

Renatta Signorini
A $1.4 million winning Cash 5 ticket was sold at the New Kensington Get Go along Tarentum Bridge Road.

The good news: Someone who played the Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 at a New Kensington gas station matched all five balls drawn Monday.

The bad news: Someone else did too.

Two winners will split a $1.4 million jackpot after two tickets matched all five balls — 3-10-18-34-39. Each winner will get $700,000, according to an announcement from the Pennsylvania Lottery.

The winning tickets were sold about 250 miles apart at the GetGo station on Tarentum Bridge Road in New Kensington and at a Sheetz store in Ephrata, Lancaster County. The winners must have their tickets validated to claim their prize.

The retailers each will get a $5,000 bonus.

The chances of winning the Cash 5 jackpot are 1 in 962,598, according to the announcement. Players can win prizes for matching two, three or four winning numbers. All five numbers drawn must match a player’s ticket to win the jackpot.

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.
