Monday’s Cash 5 drawing produced two winning tickets for players who purchased their tickets at Mecklenburg County convenience stores, according to a press release from the North Carolina Education Lottery. 

The two winners split the $2.1 million jackpot and will each receive a $1.05 million prize.

One winning ticket was purchased at the Circle K on University Boulevard in Charlotte.

The second winning ticket was purchased at the Circle K on John J Delaney Drive in Charlotte.

Both tickets matched the numbers on all five balls, 3-5-34-40-41. The record-high jackpot marked the first time a Cash 5 jackpot estimate reached over $2 million in the game’s history.

The winners have 180 days from the drawing to claim their prizes.
