Powerball lottery ticket worth $1M expired

PowerballPowerball: Powerball lottery ticket worth $1M expired

BOISE, Id. — Idaho Lottery officials say time has run out for someone holding a Powerball ticket worth $1 million.

The winning ticket was sold for the March 6, 2010 Powerball draw. The ticket was purchased at Huskey's in Irwin, Idaho near the Idaho-Wyoming border. The ticket matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball.

Winners have 180 days to collect their prizes, and Thursday at 6 p.m. was deadline for the ticket holder to claim the $1 million.

"Too many times we've seen players think they did not have a winning ticket because they did not match the Powerball number itself," said Idaho Lottery Director Jeff Anderson. "In this case, the winning ticket matched every number but the Powerball number and with the PowerPlay, is worth $1 million."

The winning numbers for that night were 10, 29, 33, 41, and 59. The Powerball number was 15.

This ticket is a "Match 5" ticket meaning it matched every number but not the Powerball. This type of winning ticket without the PowerPlay is worth $200,000. Since a change to Powerball in January 2009, a "Match 5" ticket with the PowerPlay multiplier is automatically worth $1 million.

Since the prize went unclaimed, the $1 million will ultimately benefit Idaho public schools and permanent buildings.

Over the past few years, two other "Match 5" Powerball tickets have gone unclaimed, each worth $200,000.

One was from Albertsons in Nampa from April 2006 and the other was from Malad City in January 2008.

Sad. Someone must've not checked their tickets properly and probaly threw out the ticket thats worth $1,000,000.00 . At least some of the money will go towards school and education that is a good thing.

              Maybe this was a gifted ticket to an older teenager. An irresponsible teenager who forgot to check the ticket!.

              It is sad to hear that the failed education system has received yet again more monies.

              Having millions of dollars in my financial accounts means more, consistent fun for me.Lovies

                          It's a shame the ticket expired. Maybe it was an advance play and the person checked the wrong draw then tossed it?

                          Or maybe lost it (and no one found it, of course)

                          Or maybe, just maybe, the time for claiming the prize should be LONGER.
