Last week, five people in Pennsylvania came forward to collect a $516 million Mega Millions jackpot – the largest ever in state history. Now, another Pennsylvanian may be $5.4 million richer after purchasing a winning Match 6 Lotto ticket in Luzerne County. But these (literal) winners should bathe in their Scrooge McDuck-esque wealth while they can, because if they take the Pennsylvania Turnpike on a daily basis, a new toll increase from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission could threaten to dry up their pools full of cash starting next year. Turnpike drivers will see a 5% toll increase beginning next year, so unless these ticket-buyers want to see their newfound fortunes slowly wither away, they better find a new route. You know what they say: The state giveth and the state taketh away.
