NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — An unclaimed lottery ticket purchased in Newport News is about to expire!
Someone might miss out on some serious cash. A Powerball ticket in the February 23 drawing won, but no one has claimed the $50,000 prize.
By law, winning lottery tickets in Virginia expire 180 days after the drawing. That means the ticket will become worthless at 5 p.m. on Thursday, August 22.
The ticket was bought at the 7-Eleven at 1401 Kiln Creek Parkway in Newport News.
The winning numbers were 4-6-14-20-32, and the Powerball number was 13. The ticket matched four of the first five numbers plus the Powerball number.
Unclaimed prizes, by law, go to Virginia's Literary Fund, which provides low-interest loans to localities for public school construction, renovations, and technology upgrades.
Whoever has the winning ticket should contact the Virginia Lottery immediately at 757-825-7800, or they should present the winning ticket at the Virginia Lottery’s Hampton Roads Customer Service Center at 2306-2308 West Mercury Blvd. in Hampton.
