Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5

MIDDLETOWN, PA — Excitement continues to build for tonight’s Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 jackpot of $2.4 million, which has set the record for the largest top prize offered in the game’s nearly 27-year history.

“It’s very exciting that the Cash 5 jackpot has set a new all-time record,” said Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “Regardless of the jackpot size, we always remind players to please play responsibly.”

The previous record for the all-time high Cash 5 jackpot was tied on Thursday, March 7, when the jackpot hit $2 million. There was no jackpot-winning ticket sold for the Thursday drawing, which led to the jackpot rolling to a new high. Thursday’s jackpot tied the previous record set on Jan. 17, 2017. Three winning tickets shared the $2 million jackpot from that 2017 drawing.

This Cash 5 jackpot has been growing since the last jackpot win on Friday, February 22, when a $500,000 jackpot was won by one ticket sold in Beaver County.

Cash 5 is the Pennsylvania Lottery’s longest-running jackpot game. It 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.
