Winning lottery ticket to expire if prize goes unclaimed
GRIFFITH, Ind. — A winning Powerball lottery ticket sold in northwestern Indiana will expire Monday if the $50,000 prize goes unclaimed.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that the ticket must be redeemed by 5 p.m. Monday at the Hoosier Lottery headquarters in Indianapolis.
The ticket for the March 14 Powerball drawing was purchased at a Speedway gas station in Griffith.
While it wasn’t a winner of the big cash prize, it secured a smaller payout by matching four of the five non-Powerball numbers drawn.
The winning numbers for that drawing were: 6, 12, 24, 41, 68 and Powerball 9.
Lottery rules require all draw game prizes be claimed within 180 days of the drawing.
