5 area lottery tickets won big, too

Posted: March 26, 2013

North Jersey may have snagged the big one - a $338.3 million Powerball jackpot - but the Philadelphia area has also landed a lot of loot in recent days.

So check those tickets, and tell your friends.

Here's a rundown.

$1 million Powerball tickets sold in Montgomery, Lehigh Counties. In Saturday night's drawing, 14 tickets nationwide came close to winning the jackpot, matching the first five numbers - 17, 29, 31, 52 and 53 - but not the Powerball of 31. Two $1 million winners were sold in Pennsylvania, at a 7-Eleven at 255 W. Horsham Road in Horsham, Montgomery County, and at Hess Express, 3640 Route 309, in Orefield, Lehigh County.

New Jersey's $1 million winner was sold at a 7-Eleven at 17 Franklin Turnpike, in Mahwah, Bergen County.

$250,000 Mega Millions ticket bought in Bucks County. The winner bought a ticket at Bensalem Beer & Soda, 1919 Street Road for Friday night's drawing, and matched the first five numbers - 14, 27, 34, 37 and 41 - but missed the Mega Ball, which was 38.

$1.8 million Match 6 Lotto ticket purchased in Delaware County. Peppy's Automotive, at 775 Burmont Road in Drexel Hill, sold a ticket that matched all six numbers in Thursday's Match 6 Lotto drawing, winning the jackpot. They were 6, 16, 34, 39, 40 and 42.

$325,000 Cash 5 ticket sold in Montgomery County. Thursday's jackpot was won by a ticket purchased at Blue Bell Gas, 1399 Skippack Pike, in Blue Bell. It matched all five numbers: 4, 13, 26, 29 and 40.
