One NE Texan A Millionaire, IF, They Find That Ticket In Time
There is an unclaimed $1 Million Powerball ticket out there somewhere, and it's set to expire on April 20, 2023.
The winning Powerball ticket was purchased on October 22, 2022, and that means time is running out to claim that big fat prize. A second-tier winning ticket worth $1 million for the Powerball® drawing held on Oct. 22, 2022, will soon expire. It was a Quick Pick ticket matching five out of the six numbers drawn.
The winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn (19-25-48-55-60), but not the red Powerball number (18). The deadline to claim the prize is Thursday, April 20, 2023, at 5 p.m. local time. The ticket holder may claim the prize at any Texas Lottery® claim center.
The ticket holder may also claim the prize by mail, although that would not be the direction I would take this late in the game. If you do go the snail-mail route, your ticket, along with a claim form, must be postmarked on or prior to the April 20 ticket expiration date and should be mailed to:
Texas Lottery Commission
ATTN: Austin Claim Center PO Box 16600
Austin, TX 78761-6600
They ask that you please allow 8-12 weeks for mail-in claims to be processed.
The ticket was purchased at Tiger Mart 75, located at 3070 N.E. Loop 286, in Paris, Texas. Do you live in Paris? Have you driven through Paris? If so, check those ashtrays and cubbyholes in your pickup, car, or SUV, look up under the visor, or maybe your junk drawer at home.
A ticket holder forfeits any claim to a prize for a draw game after the expiration of the 180th day following the draw date. The deadline may be extended for a period of time for certain eligible military personnel. Unclaimed prizes revert back to the state for programs authorized by the Texas Legislature.
