The clock is ticking for the winner of a Pennsylvania Lottery jackpot-winning Cash 5 ticket worth $325,000 from last year’s March 18, 2012 drawing.

The numbers drawn for the record Powerball jackpot are: 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and Powerball of 6.
Tonight’s Powerball drawing is worth an estimated $550-million annuity or $325-million for the cash payout.
A Powerball ticket worth $1-million from Saturday’s drawing was sold at Blitz’s Market in Cape May County, New Jersey.
Lottery officials say nobody has won the Powerball jackpot and the top prize will now increase to about $425 million for the next drawing, the largest jackpot ever for the game.
Officials say Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is the largest jackpot since August 15, 2012.
