A jackpot-winning Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 ticket was sold in Plum, the lottery announced Thursday.

The ticket was sold at Shop ‘n Save on Golden Mile Highway in the Holiday Park section of the borough.

The winning ticket matched all five balls drawn on Tuesday — 9, 23, 27, 33, 38 — and won $800,000, before taxes.

The store will get a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

More than 52,500 other Cash 5 tickets also won prizes in the drawing.

Cash 5 prizes expire one year from the drawing date.

Anyone holding a jackpot-winning Cash 5 ticket should sign the ticket, call the lottery at 717-702-8146, and file a claim at the nearest lottery office.

Last fiscal year, lottery players in Allegheny County won more than $256.3 million and programs benefitting older residents received more than $129.2 million in lottery funds.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
