Unclaimed, jackpot-winning Cash 5 ticket was sold in Carbon County

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — Time is running out for the holder of a jackpot-winning Pennsylvania Cash 5 ticket worth nearly $350,000 from the Sept. 29, 2010, drawing to claim the prize.

The ticket and prize will expire one year from the date of the drawing.

"The deadline for claiming this prize is just two weeks away, and we hate to see prizes go unclaimed" said Todd Rucci, Lottery Executive Director. "I encourage players to check closets, wallets, couch cushions and other hiding places for Cash 5 tickets from last September, in hopes the winner will find the ticket and present it for validation."

The soon-to-expire Cash 5 ticket correctly matched all five numbers drawn, 2, 13, 17, 26, and 34, to win $349,057.50, less 25% federal withholding. It was sold at Tresckow Super Food, 6 S. Walnut St., Tresckow, Carbon County.

The Pennsylvania Lottery encourages the ticket-holder to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim by Sept. 29 at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery's seven area offices. Claims may be filed at headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at area Lottery offices.

Unclaimed, expired lottery prizes remain in the Lottery Fund and are used to support programs benefiting older Pennsylvanians. In the 2009-10 fiscal year, the Pennsylvania Lottery contributed nearly $7.1 million to programs that benefited Carbon County's older residents.

        Makes one wonder why the players haven't been alllowed to have a 2nd chance drawing for the monies unclaimed. Do it twice a year and give back to those who contributed, afterall that money came from the players and not the state lottery. Then if after the 2nd chance those folks dont claim, then the state can have it....

              My money goes to Treasure Hunt. Only 30 numbers. Cash five has 43. Who cares about this  ticket that's gonna expire?

                  Why don't people take better care of their tickets after they purchase them? I treat mine just like cash--they go in my wallet immediately.

                    Typically, the state lottery's claim that unclaimed jackpot prizes go towards future promo's such as second chnace drawings

                      For the heck of it I looked through the Fl Lottery site  - Lotto - Fantasy Five etc to see how many winning tickets expired. I was amazed to see an $18M Lotto prize never claimed. Hard to believe ! I couldn't find a place that shows how many top prize winning scratchers were never claimed/expired.

                          That is why I think unclaimed lottery prizes should go into a states unclaimed funds account. Most all other unclaimed funds go there.

                          Hey check your states unclaimed funds dept to see if your name is there. Not hard to do. Billions in states unclaimed funds.
