It seems some loads of laundry brought loads of cash. Consider it a net Gain. A turning of the Tide. And a reason to Cheer.
Detergent jokes aside, a laundromat in West Philadelphia did indeed spin some big bucks toward a PA Lottery player.
In the May 21 drawing, a West Philly lotto player matched all five balls drawn (7-11-17-24-36) in the Cash 5 with Quick Cash PA Lottery game to win $300,000 before withholding.
The ticket was purchased at Laundromat Paradise at 447 N. 63rd St. in West Philadelphia. The business will receive a $500 bonus for selling the ticket.
