Against the odds, a $400,000 Pennsylvania Lottery ticket was sold in Adams County.
The Cash 5 jackpot-winning ticket was sold July 6 at SnapGo, 15 Buchanan Valley Road, Orrtanna, according to a news release.
The business earned a $500 bonus for selling the ticket, which bore the numbers 22-25-28-30-40, the release reads.
Cash 5 numbers are drawn daily. For each $1 ticket, the player chooses five numbers from 1 to 43 or opts for computer-selected digits.

Since 1972, the lottery has contributed more than $29 billion to provide benefits for older Pennsylvanians, including property tax and rent rebates, transportation, care services, prescription assistance, and local services, according to the release. Pennsylvania remains the only state to direct all lottery proceeds to senior residents, the release reads.
To claim winnings, ticket holders must sign the ticket, call lottery officials at 717-702-8146, and file a claim at the nearest lottery office.
