A jackpot-winning Cash 5 ticket from Friday's drawing was sold at a Conewago Township Rutter's Farm Store, the Pennsylvania Lottery has announced.

The winner is Joseph Heiges Jr. of York, said lottery spokeswoman Lauren Bottaro.

The ticket correctly matched all five balls, 01-14-18-25-42, to win a prize of $700,000, minus 25 percent federal withholding. Odds of winning the jackpot prize are 1 in 962,598, according to the lottery.

The store, located at 5305 N. Susquehanna Trail off I-83's Strinestown exit, will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the ticket.

"That's terrific," said Alex Henry, Rutter's communications manager. "We have had big winners before."

Since 2007, Rutter's customers have purchased 29 winning tickets worth $100,000 or more, she said. In total, those tickets bring the lottery winnings for Rutter's customers to nearly $11 million since 2007, she said.

"We are very excited for our lucky customer, and we are looking forward to continuing our winning streak," Henry said.
