The Pennsylvania Lottery ticket was purchased at a small country store.
One Keystone State athlete is eligible for the millions if they come forward before November 13, 2024.
The winning ticket was purchased at Shop n’ Save in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, according to the Post-Gazette.
Match 6, a state drawing game, provided the prize.
According to the lottery website, the numbers to look for are 03-11-26-29-30-38.
Match 6 is similar to national games like Powerball and Mega Millions in that you choose six numbers between one and 49.
- Every night, numbers are picked at random.
- Players who match all six numbers win the jackpot, as the name implies.
- However, there are alternative methods to win.
Because the chances of winning large on lottery tickets are slim, many consumers fail to check their tickets for rewards.
The winner of Match 6 is not alone in forgetting tickets.
A Powerball player from Arizona recently won $100,000. That ticket was purchased at a bar and is now claimed.
Many other tickets, on the other hand, remain unresolved. A $1 million prize in Rhode Island has yet to be claimed.
Unclaimed $100,000 Prize from Winning Ticket Sold at Unusual Place
Lottery administrators are hoping that participants verify their tickets before a $100,000 reward expires on November 13th.
The winning ticket was sold in an unusual location, not a convenience shop or petrol station.
Unbeknownst to him, a lottery player in Arizona is sitting on a $100,000 Powerball windfall. A winning ticket for the November 4 draw was sold at the Parkview Tap House in Fountain Hills.
The winning numbers in the draw were one, 28, 30, 34, 52, and six for the Powerball. A fortunate player correctly matched four of the five numbers plus the powerball.
Their original $50,000 reward was doubled due to the Power Play number of two. Although Parkview Tap House regulars may be expecting the winner to pay for the following several rounds, the ticket holder has yet to be identified. They have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their reward.
Otherwise, the money will be returned to the Prize Fund and used in future draws.
Despite the large sums at stake, it is fairly rare for lottery winners to go unclaimed. Every year, lottery experts believe that billions of dollars in rewards are never awarded to their rightful winners. Lottery play is a kind of gambling and should be done carefully.
If you do play the lottery, you should always verify your tickets after the draw. Otherwise, you can end up like one Iowa player who is unintentionally sitting on a $2 million windfall. The genuine owner of a Powerball ticket purchased for the October 7 draw has yet to be identified. They purchased their ticket at Casey’s convenience shop in Tiffin.
There is also only one day left to collect a $1.2 million prize in Chicago, Illinois. Over a million dollars have been left unclaimed in someone’s pocket or wherever they placed their lottery ticket.
A WOMAN had the shock of her life when she received a delivery of $20,000 in scratch-offs
The FedEx shipment was delivered to the incorrect location. Danielle Alexandrov got a delivery of lottery tickets by mistake.
“I start going through the boxes; everything is normal until I get a box that is very heavy,” Danielle Alexandrov told WCVB, a local ABC station. “When I open it, it’s a box of scratch tickets.”
“And I’m thinking, ‘Is this a joke?’ until I look at the receipt, and its value is $20,000 worth of scratch tickets.”
The package was meant for the adjacent Kenyon’s Market.
According to WCVB, Kenyon’s Market is well-known for its lottery ticket inventory.
Alexandrov returned the tickets to the Massachusetts Lottery after being shocked by the contents of the box.
“What happens if I keep these? Is it possible for me to sleep at night? Alexandrov told WYMT, a local CBS station.
“I was asking myself those kinds of things, and it was like, ‘No.'”
Returning the tickets, according to lottery authorities, was the proper course of action.
“These tickets have no value until they’re activated by a retail agent,” Christian Teja of the Massachusetts Lottery told WCVB.
“If someone tried to take one of these tickets, if it was a winning ticket, and brought it to a retail location, there would be a message that would flag it and they’d be unable to cash the ticket.”
Alexandrov aided in the delivery of the package to the market.
“We promised to do what was right. “So we looked at the receipt and put it where it belonged and worked on returning the box,” Alexandrov told WYMT.
In response to a request for comment, FedEx said: “The security of our customers’ shipments is a top priority, and we offer our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience caused by this situation. We are taking the appropriate steps to investigate and resolve this issue.”
