North Carolina LotteryNorth Carolina Lottery: NC Cash 5 lottery winner has one week left to claim $487K prizeRating:

Have you checked all your old lottery tickets? The winner of a nearly $500,000 prize has one week left to claim it before their luck permanently runs out.

That's what North Carolina lottery officials are announcing as the claim to a $487,105 Cash 5 prize won in January is set to expire on July 8.

"Let's get the word out that this Cash 5 jackpot is still waiting to be claimed," said Mark Michalko, executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery, in a news release. "Whoever had the great luck to win this prize deserves to get it. Check your Cash 5 tickets so we can get this jackpot to the person who won it."

The winning ticket was sold at the Circle K on South Main Street in Lillington, North Carolina, which is in Harnett County.

The winning numbers for the Jan. 9 drawing were 7, 22, 23, 29, and 32. Winners have 180 days to claim a prize in the Cash 5 statewide daily draw game and must bring the ticket to lottery headquarters on Capital Boulevard in Raleigh.

Incidentally, there were two winning tickets in the nearly $300,000 Cash 5 jackpot from Saturday's drawing. The tickets were sold in Cove City in Craven County and Cary in Wake County.

      Oh my goodness let me go look at my tickets if there are any laying around here...don't buy many cash 5 but maybe I should...have gotten 4 right 2 times over the years.

      ...that's not a good average as long ago as it's been but one time it was when they had some kind of contest with it...forgot now what it was but my 4 I got right was a qp and they were listed on the ticket in order as they came out...I won $276...that was when they paid more now it's a flat $250 for 4 right.

              Can someone tell me if they turn in a 6 month old ticket do they get the interest that has occurred? I hope so if not it is robbery.
