Got a lottery ticket?
Virginia Lottery officials said they are looking for the owner of a $100,000 winning ticket who has yet to come forward to claim the prize.
The Cash 5 lottery ticket was purchased on May 2 at a 7-Eleven convenience store in the 5800 block of North King’s Highway in Alexandria. The winning numbers were 6-15-18-23-32, and the winning ticket matched all five numbers.
By law, winning Virginia lottery tickets expire 180 days after the drawing. That means 5 p.m. Tuesday is the deadline for the winner to claim the prize.
If no one comes forward with the ticket, the prize money will go to the Virginia’s Literary Fund, which helps pay for technology upgrades in schools and fund teachers’ retirement plans.
The person with the May 2 winning ticket is advised to contact lottery officials at 804-692-7777.
If the winner does not come forward, he or she will join many other winners who did not claim their prizes in time.
Since 1988, more than $234 million in unclaimed prizes has gone into the state’s literary fund, according to officials.
