May 4—A jackpot-winning Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 ticket was sold Monday at Rick's Tobacco Outlet along Route 30 in Hempfield, state lottery officials said.

The winning ticket, sold along with a Quick Cash ticket, was for Monday's drawing and matched all five balls drawn, 3-7-22-29-36. The winner won $200,000 less withholding, according to lottery officials.

"Wow. That's fantastic," said Rikki McKee, a clerk at the store east of Greensburg.

She said the winner has not claimed the prize at the store.

"We had a $125,000 winner a couple of years ago on the Cash 5. It was one of our regular players," she said. "I hope this one is one of our regular players, too."

The store will earn a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Winners can be identified only after prizes are claimed and tickets validated.

A main Cash 5 game prize must be claimed within one year of the drawing date. Any prizes won on Quick Cash games also must be claimed within one year of the purchase date.

Anyone holding a jackpot-winning Cash 5 should contact the nearest Lottery office for further instructions or call 1-800-692-7481.

More than 14,000 other Cash 5 with Quick Cash tickets won prizes in the drawing.
