PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- The Cash 5 jackpot has reached a record high.

The prize is now $2.4 million, surpassing the previous all-time high of $2 million. That record was set in 2017 and tied on Thursday.

In 2017, three winning tickets shared the $2 million jackpot.

The last time someone hit the Cash 5 jackpot was Feb. 22 when a winning ticket was sold in Beaver County. The jackpot was $500,000 at the time.

Cash 5 is the Pennsylvania Lottery's longest-running jackpot game, going back to 1992.
