There’s a record-setting jackpot drawing tonight for PA Lottery players
Yesterday’s $2.5 million Cash 5 With Quick Cash jackpot broke the record for that game’s largest prize ever offered. The drawing yesterday concluded with no big winner. Tonight, the jackpot prize is even higher, as $3 million is the new top prize and new Cash 5 jackpot record.
The previous jackpot record was set in Columbia County, when it was hit at $2.4 million on March 8, 2019.
Cash 5 With Quick Cash is the PA Lottery’s longest running draw game. It was launched as Cash 5 in 1992. In 1998, the game switched from a weekly drawing schedule to daily, offering players more chances to win. The lottery relaunched the game as Cash 5 With Quick Cash on March 23, 2021, adding an instant game that offers players a chance to win $2 or $6 immediately.
