One lucky Missouri Lottery player has just a couple of weeks remaining to claim a $200,000 prize from the Oct. 31, 2009, Powerball drawing. Unless the holder of this ticket comes forward, the prize will expire on Thursday, April 29.
The winning ticket was purchased at Casey’s General Store, 808 E. Highway 72, in Rolla. It matched all five white-ball numbers drawn to win the second tier prize of $200,000. The winning numbers were: 2, 19, 26, 41 and 54.
“Don’t let your luck run out,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director for the Missouri Lottery. “If you’re lucky enough to be holding this winning ticket, please make sure you sign the back of it and keep it in a safe place until you can bring it to a Lottery office to claim your prize. We need to hear from you by 5 p.m. on the 29th.”
Powerball winners have exactly 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. Any prize money that goes unclaimed 180 days after the draw date will go to benefit Missouri public education.
