SHAMOKIN — The lucky Cash 5 player who matched all five numbers in the April 30 drawing is from Shamokin.
According to Ewa Dworakowski, press secretary for the Pennsylvania Lottery, Tammie Broscious claimed the $2 million jackpot on Monday. She matched all five balls drawn, 10-12-24-28-38.
The ticket was sold at Puff Discount, 705 E. Race St., Shamokin, which earns a $10,000 bonus for selling the winner.
Though the Pennsylvania Lottery has a policy that only the county of a winner may be revealed, online records show Broscious is a resident of Shamokin.
Dworakowski said Tuesday that Broscious has decided to decline to tell her story.
The odds of matching all five numbers is 1 in 962,598; 1 in 5,066 to match four; 1 in 136.93 for three; and 1 in 11.41 for two.
The Cash 5 starting jackpot is $125,000 and grows until someone picks the winning lottery numbers. All Cash 5 Lottery prizes are made as one-time, lump-sum payments.
In other lottery news, scratch-off winners claimed $180,398,033 million in prizes during April, including three top prizes worth $1 million claimed by players from Philadelphia, Erie and Delaware counties.
Additionally, three retailers throughout the state sold $1 million winning tickets and will receive a bonus of $5,000.
Across Pennsylvania, other big prizes claimed during April includes 9 prizes of $300,000; 13 prizes of $100,000; and three prizes worth more than $80,000 each.

The Pennsylvania Lottery remains the only state lottery to direct all proceeds to programs that benefit older residents.
Since ticket sales began in 1972, it has contributed more than $29 billion to fund property tax and rent rebates, transportation, care services, prescription assistance, and local services including senior centers and meals.
