On November 2, a ticket from Missouri hit Powerball for $36 million annuity. AFAIK the winner(s) have not come forward. While they have a year to claim the prize, in the next few days they will lose the opportunity to choose the cash value and be forced to receive annuity payments if they do not come forward.

    If they do not claim by Friday they will get the annuity.  Or the state will get it if no one shows up in the next 10 or 11 months.

      I bet it will go unclaimed.

        Would that be the first time in history a Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot has gone unclaimed?

          I think it will be claimed before the $36 million jackpot does get expired. However, it will be most likely annunity.

            lol, probably waiting on a divorce to go thru before claiming it.

            I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

              My hunch is that it will go unclaimed.  I haven't seen anything anywhere that even speculates as to who the winner might be.  So I suspect that whoever it is doesn't realize that they've won.  If on the other hand they've been able to keep a lid on this this thing for a month until they get their ducks in a row...my hat's off to them.
