Oregon Lottery officials say it's time to double-check your wallet or your purse, or even the sofa, to see if a lottery ticket with the winning numbers was overlooked.
The search is for a winning Oregon Lottery ticket worth $1,000 a week for life, and which is about to expire.
The Win for Life ticket was purchased on May 23 last year in Hood River. The winning numbers are 06-43-46-51.
It's worth about $670 a week after taxes, or nearly $35,000 a year.
After May 23, 2008, when the ticket expires, that winning ticket is just a worthless piece of paper.
Oregon's Win for Life game is played every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Drawings take place at 7:30 pm Pacific Time (GMT-8:00), and the winning numbers are selected by a computerized random number generator.
The largest unclaimed Oregon Lottery prize ever was a $3.5 million Megabucks jackpot for a ticket purchased in Tualatin in June 1996.
