PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A lot of money is on the line in Thursday night’s Cash 5 lottery drawing.
Pennsylvania Lottery officials say the $2 million prize is tied for the largest in the game’s nearly 27-year history.
The last $2 million Cash 5 jackpot was shared between three winning tickets back in January of 2017.
Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko said in a press release: “It’s been more than two years since the Cash 5 jackpot has approached this level. Regardless of the jackpot size, we always remind players to please play responsibly.”
The winning numbers for Thursday’s drawing are: 18-20-21-27-43
The jackpot has been growing since Feb. 22.
That’s when someone in Beaver County matched all five numbers to win a $500,000 jackpot.
Cash 5 is the Pennsylvania Lottery’s longest-running jackpot game, going back to 1992.
