The Pennsylvania Lottery's Cash 5 jackpot has reached a record $1.9 million after rolling seven times. It has been growing since two tickets split the Jan. 29 jackpot.
"Excitement is very high among Pennsylvania Lottery players," said Lottery Executive Director Todd Rucci. "In addition to our Cash 5 jackpot reaching a record level, tonight's Powerball jackpot is worth $208 million. This promises to be a busy day at Lottery retailers."
Should no player hit tonight's Cash 5 jackpot, it will rise to at least $2 million.
The April 15, 2008, Cash 5 drawing holds the record for the largest total payout; the jackpot worth $1,867,253 was shared between two winning tickets. That jackpot was advertised at $1.8 million.
A Cash 5 ticket worth nearly $1.7 million from the April 19, 2011, drawing holds the record as the largest single, jackpot-winning ticket since the game's 1992 inception.
Cash 5 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes. Claims may be filed at headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.
