A jackpot-winning Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 ticket was sold in Brackenridge.

The ticket sold at Brackenridge Beverage won $400,000 in Monday’s drawing, the Pennsylvania Lottery announced Tuesday. The ticket matched all five balls drawn — 4, 25, 31, 33 and 41.

Brackenridge Beverage, at 825 First Ave., gets a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket, the lottery said.

A Cash 5 ticket costs $1. Players select five numbers from one to 43, which they can choose or selected by a computer. A player must match all five numbers to win the jackpot; odds of winning the jackpot are one in 962,598.

More than 25,000 other Cash 5 tickets also won prizes in the drawing. Prizes can be won for matching two, three or four winning numbers. The chances of winning any prize are about 1 in 11.

Winners are unknown until prizes are claimed and tickets are validated. Cash 5 prizes expire one year from the drawing date.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
