A winning Cash 5 lottery ticket worth $500,000 was sold at the t 7-Eleven in the 3600 block of Hulmeville Road in Bensalem this week.

The lottery said in a press release that the ticket correctly matched all five balls – 02-03-11-21-26 – to win a jackpot of $500,000, less 25 percent federal withholding.

State lottery officials said the ticket was among 52,550 prizing-winning tickets sold across the state for Thursday’s drawing.

The 7-Eleven will receive a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Information from officials on how to claim the prize:

Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Cash 5 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

The holder of the winning ticket should promptly sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at any of Lottery’s seven area offices or at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County.

Claims may be filed Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices and at headquarters from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Pennsylvania Lottery awarded a total of more than $122.1 million in prizes to winners across Bucks County last year.
