More than two months after matching all five white-ball numbers in the Feb. 8 Powerball drawing, the owner of a winning ticket worth $1 million has yet to come forward, and the prize remains unclaimed.
The ticket was purchased at Schnucks Market, 60 Hampton Village Plaza, in St. Louis. The winning number combination was: 17, 28, 38, 39 and 51.
“It’s been a couple of months, so if you even think you purchased a ticket for a Powerball drawing at this location, it could be worth your while to double-check,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director for the Missouri Lottery. “Look anywhere you might have stashed a loose ticket, like the console of your car, the bottom of a purse or the back of a wallet.
“Just imagine how much fun it would be to reach into the pocket of your winter coat and pull out a ticket worth a million bucks,” she added.
Powerball winners have exactly 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. In this case, the winner has until Aug. 6, 2012, to present the winning ticket.
