Clock’s Ticking Down on Royersford Cash 5 Ticket

ROYERSFORD PA – Time’s running out for some lucky soul to cash in a $200,000 winning Pennsylvania Lottery ticket that was sold almost a year ago by Wawa Store 8038, at 451 W. Ridge Pike.

Officials at Lottery headquarters in Middletown PA issued what amounts to a “last call” notice Tuesday (Oct. 19, 2021). They publicly alerted the person or persons who bought a jackpot-winning Cash 5 with Quick Cash ticket for last year’s Nov. 28 game that, unless presented for payment, it’s due to expire and become worthless in only 36 days on Nov. 24 (Wednesday).

“Players, check your tickets,” the Lottery warned. Its specific winner matched all five balls drawn: 5, 11, 21, 42, and 43. Produce it and claim $200,000, less applicable withholding. Here’s how, it added:

  • Sign the back of the ticket;
  • Call the Lottery at 1-800-692-7481 to notify it; and
  • File a timely claim at any of Lottery’s seven area offices. Currently, they’re open to the public by appointment only weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The headquarters in Middletown remains closed.

What happens to winnings that go unclaimed? By law, the Lottery said, expired prizes “remain in the Lottery Fund, and are used to support programs benefiting older Pennsylvanians.”
