Better to cash 'em than to trash 'em.
In the case of three lottery tickets sold in the Philadelphia area, the cash is a nice piece of treasure.
On Friday, Mega Millions produced two local $250,000 winners, one in Philadelphia and one in Delaware County.
On Saturday, a $225,000 Cash 5 jackpot was won in Chester County.
The Mega Millions tickets just missed the $12 million jackpot, matching the first five numbers - 4, 8, 17, 22 and 32, but not the Mega Ball, which was 8.
