MADISON, Wis. — Time is nearly out for a Wisconsin lottery player to claim a huge win.
A winning $1 million Powerball ticket was sold on Madison's east side for the Aug. 6 drawing, Wisconsin Lottery officials said.
Once lottery numbers are drawn, winners have 180 days to claim their prize. To meet that deadline, the missing Madison ticket must be claimed at the Wisconsin Lottery's headquarters at 2135 Rimrock Road in Madison, by 4 p.m. on Thursday, February 2, 2017.
"If the ticket is not redeemed by the deadline, the $1 million will be returned to Wisconsinites in the form of property tax relief," lottery spokesman Casey Langan said.
The winning numbers from the August 6, 2016 drawing were 20, 33, 36, 47, and 52, with Powerball number 12. The Power Play number was 3.
If the ticket expires, it won't be the first time. A $1 million ticket sold in Eau Claire in late 2015 expired in March of last year after the winner failed to come forward.
