Pictured holding a Cash-5 lottery ticket and pointing at a screen stating their store sold the winning ticket is Turkey Hill employee Chris Drysdale, 32, who sold the winning lottery ticket. Drysdale said, "I honestly don't remember who purchased the ticket." Jennifer Burns, store manager, and Drysdale said they are excited that their store sold the winning lottery ticket and congratulated whoever won." Lottery officials at Middletown confirmed Monday that one jackpot-winning Cash 5 ticket worth $913,670.50 in the Aug. 5 drawing was sold at the store. As of Tuesday, the ticket-holder who matched all five numbers, 9-10-18-25-41, has yet to step forward to claim the prize. The winning ticket-holder is advised to sign the ticket and put it in a safe place, according to Elizabeth Brassell, spokesperson of the Pennsylvania Lottery. She added, "Don't let the ticket sit in a safe place for long, as prizes must be claimed within one year from the date of a drawing." Drysdale added, "Our lottery sales have increased a lot since everyone heard of the winning." The retailer will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
