South Bend retailer sells Cash 5
jackpot-winning ticket worth $133,000
INDIANAPOLIS – Cash 5, the Hoosier Lottery’s newest draw game, has delivered another jackpot win to a lucky player in Indiana, this time courtesy of a winning ticket sold by a retailer in South Bend.
The winning ticket, which is now worth an estimated $133,000, was purchased at Rick’s 66 at 51519 State Road 933 North in South Bend. The ticket matched all five numbers in last night’s Cash 5 drawing which were: 4-6-20-26-29.
Last night's jackpot hit is the fifth in the short history of Cash 5, which launched Nov. 4. Players in Merrillville, Fort Wayne, Muncie and Monticello laid claim to the game’s first four jackpot prizes.
Cash 5 offers the best cash odds of any Hoosier Lottery draw game and costs just $1 per play. The overall odds of winning are 1 in 8.8. Cash 5 numbers are drawn every night. The jackpot starts at $50,000 and rolls, or increases, every night until it is hit.
Players may purchase Cash 5 tickets anywhere Hoosier Lottery draw games are sold and may be purchased simply by asking a retail clerk for "Cash 5."
