$1M Winning Cash 5 Sold at Trexlertown Top Star

The Trexlertown gas station and convenience store sold the $1 million winning Cash 5 ticket for Monday night's drawing.

A winning Pennsylvania Cash 5 lottery ticket was sold at the Trexlertown Top Star Monday, making someone in the area a millionaire.

The Cash 5 ticket correctly matched all five balls (02-13-20-41-42) in Monday night's drawing, according to www.palottery.com

Employees at the Top Star store wouldn't comment on the winning ticket, citing store policy even though the store receives a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ducat. There wasn't even a sign on the lottery machine proclaiming the store sold a million-dollar winner.

Top Star customers were surprised by the story of a big win at the location.

A man named Ray, who declined to give his last name, just finished buying a cadre of Cash 5 tickets and said he wasn't aware of a winner being sold at the store.

"I didn't know that," he said. "And, I come by here once a week to buy tickets. I wish I'd come by yesterday."

Ray said he'd probably buy a house at the shore with a million dollars.

Linda Urban of Breiningsville said she wished it were her husband who'd won, because he plays Cash 5 at the Top Star all the time.

"I'd probably invest it in some beach property," she said.

Mike Armbruster of Trexlertown said he doesn't play the lottery too often.

"I'd save the money for my kids," he said. "A million dollars is a lot of money."

Then, there are those people such as Dave Floyd of Breinigsville who never play the lottery at all.

"No. Nope. It doesn't exist for me," he said.

Cash 5 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

Winning a big lottery jackpot like that would have me set for life! The very first thing I would do is find a good financial advisor to help me develop a plan that will make that money grow and help my family out for generations... Instead of blowing through it all in a few months like some winners do! I'm following this system I found online (simply titled "Lottery Method"; here's a review if you're interested: http://gamblingsystemreviews.net/lottery-method/ ) It's true that the lottery is mostly a game of chance, but this ebook tells you which numbers have historically had the most success, which ones rarely come up, and mistakes people make when choosing their numbers. I'm quite certain my chances are increased now that I know these tactics.

I am glad it was at the top star, that has to be the friendliest store. BEST place for fresh hot coffee, always clean, this place sparkles and so does Gloria. I really hope it was Gloria who sold the ticket, she is an asset to the store.
