Big lottery paydays for two local tickets

Posted: May 17, 2012

Here’s a roundup of the latest lottery news.

Camden County ticket wins $872,215. A Jersey Cash 5 ticket sold at Liquor Ranch, 4950 Marlton Pike, in Pennsauken matched all the numbers drawn Monday: 8, 18, 22, 26 and 36.

Delco ticket just misses Mega Millions jackpot. The $25 million top prize was won Tuesday night by single ticket purchased at a Mobil station on Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles. It matched all the numbers: 10, 11, 12, 14 and 24, and the Mega Ball of 6.

Winning $250,000, though, was a ticket at a Rite Aid on West Lancaster Avenue in Ardmore.

The ticket matched the first five numbers, as did single tickets sold by New York, Virginia, Ohio, South Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana and Oklahoma.

Friday’s jackpot will be worth $12 million for the annuity, $9 million for the cash.

Jersey Pick 6 worth more than Mega Millions. Nobody has hit Jersey Pick 6 all year, and after it rolled over again Monday night, the jackpot rose to $16.4 million for the annuity, $12.3 million cash. The odds of winning are a dozen times better than for Mega Millions or Powerball.

Powerball jackpot worth $90 million tonight. That’s the total for 30 yearly payments. The lump sum payout is $57.4 million.
