CA$H 5 Winner Urged to Check Their Ticket Before Deadline
The Hoosier Lottery has issued a warning to players regarding an unclaimed prize of $105,000 from the state’s CA$H 5 game. The jackpot, which remains unclaimed, was won by an Indiana player who purchased the winning ticket at a Casey’s convenience store in Linton, western Indiana, on January 9. With the clock ticking, the lucky winner has until early July to claim their prize and secure their fortune.
The winning numbers for the unclaimed prize are 10-27-30-35-44. Despite the considerable amount of time that has elapsed since the draw, the winner has yet to step forward to collect their winnings. As days pass, the urgency grows, leaving the unclaimed jackpot open for a lucky break.
CA$H 5, a state lotto game open exclusively to Indiana players, follows the classic drawing game format familiar to Powerball and Mega Millions. Players underpin their success on whether the numbers on their ticket match the ones drawn on white balls. With ticket costs at $1 and four ways to win, the unclaimed prize demonstrates the importance of checking lottery tickets diligently.

The winner’s incredible fortune may not be as substantial as expected, as taxes can significantly diminish lottery winnings. When players choose a lump sum payment over an annuity, they miss out on a drawn-out payout over many years, often leading to a significant reduction in the overall prize.
With the clock ticking, the call for the unidentified winner to come forward and claim their winnings intensifies. As the unclaimed jackpot sits in wait, providing a glimpse into the precarious nature of lottery winnings and the crucial importance of checking tickets diligently, the winner’s unknowing delay serves as a pressing reminder to lottery players across Indiana.
