A few big PA Lottery wins to end August
August is wrapping up on a high note for PA Lottery players, with a couple major wins on the books in recent days. The largest prize, a $3 million jackpot from a scratch off, was hit in Cumberland County. A newer ticket, $3 Million Diamonds And Gold, provided that prize and still has most of its top prizes remaining.
Lottery retailer Giant, located at 950 Walnut Bottom Road in Carlisle, sold the winning ticket. The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus.
Cash 5 With Quick Cash came through for another lucky winner in Allegheny County. The ticket, sold in Pittsburgh, hit the $603,000 jackpot on Monday, Aug. 29. Giant Eagle at 1717 Cochran Road, sold that ticket and earns a $5,000 bonus.
This big win punctuates the streak of large Cash 5 prizes hit this month. The largest of course was the $3.07 million prize won on Aug. 12, which was a record-breaker for the game.
