An unclaimed lottery jackpot ticket worth $1.65 million is about to expire.
Pennsylvania officials are warning residents to check their tickets for winning numbers.
While the winning numbers for the draw of December 16, 2021 are 8, 12, 18, 31 and 35, no one has claimed the prize.
Authorities said the Cash 5 ticket was sold by Jack Petroleum Company LLC in Armstrong County.
Tickets must be claimed by December 16, or the money must go back to the state, according to WATE.
“As required by law, unclaimed, expired lottery prizes remain in the Lottery Fund and are used to support programs that benefit older Pennsylvanians,” the Lottery said in a statement obtained by the network.
“Although some lotteries only give players 90 or 180 days to claim a prize, Pennsylvania Lottery Draw game prizes can be claimed on one business day up to one year from the drawing date.”
This comes after WATE sold a $5 million winning ticket in Allegheny County.
Tickets were originally $50 scratch off.
It was purchased in Shadyside’s Giant Eagle Market District.
That store will receive a $10,000 bonus from the state lottery.
“Scratch-offs are distributed at random, which means that the Pennsylvania Lottery and its retailers do not know where winning tickets will be sold,” said the statement obtained by WATE.
“The lottery suggests that winning tickets are sold only after the prize has been awarded.”
Although that person has not been identified.
