$2 million winning Powerball ticket goes unclaimed in Texas


You snooze, you lose but missing out on two million dollars?

Ouch, that’s gotta sting.

Texas lottery officials say a ticket that matched every number but the Powerball in a drawing last October was sold in College Station.

Thursday marked the 180-day deadline to claim that prize and nobody stepped forward.

That means that two million bucks is forfeited and goes back to the state.

Waiting until the last minute to claim a jackpot isn’t uncommon.

Another person in Texas who won a million dollar prize in the same drawing only came forward hours before the five p.m. deadlines.

There is one way the ticket holder may not be entirely out of luck the deadline can be extended for certain military personnel.
