BERWICK — The winner of the biggest pot in the 27-year history of Cash 5 bought his or her ticket from the Sheetz convenience store in Berwick.

Someone who purchased a Cash 5 with the numbers 05-06-10-12-15 for Friday's drawing has a ticket now worth just under $2.5 million, according to a press release from the state Lottery Commission.

Before Friday, the Cash 5 jackpot had been growing since Feb. 22.

The previous record for the all-time high Cash 5 jackpot was $2 million. That record was first set by the drawing held January 17, 2017. Three winning tickets shared the $2 million jackpot from that drawing. The $2 million record was tied last week for the drawing held on Thursday, March 7.

More than 156,300 other Cash 5 tickets also won prizes in Friday’s drawing. Players should check every ticket, every time, and claim lower-tier prizes at a Lottery retailer.

Cash 5 was launched as a weekly game on April 23, 1992. It became a nightly drawing in 1998. The televised drawing is conducted at 6:59 p.m., seven nights a week.

Sheetz, 2100 W. Front St., Berwick, earns a $10,000 bonus for selling the big winning ticket. The ticket matched all five balls drawn, 05-06-10-12-15, to win the top prize, less applicable withholding.
