$50k lottery ticket expires in two weeks

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – A winning Pennsylvania Lottery ticket from a draw made at the end of May 2009 and worth $50,000 to the owner is close to expiring, lottery officials have warned.

Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Lottery, Ed Trees said, “The Lottery never likes to see a prize expire, so we’re hoping the winning ticket-holder comes forward. Anyone who bought a Powerball ticket from the Stop-N-Go Mini Market in Lancaster for the May 2009 drawing should check their ticket. The $50,000 prize will expire in less than two weeks.”

If someone does find the winning ticket they are being encouraged to sign the back of it and make sure that they contact the lottery as soon as possible as the ticket will not be valid as of Sunday May 30th.

The winning ticket matched four of the five numbers drawn on 30th May 2009. The numbers were, 1, 23, 42, 51, 59.

Any unclaimed prizes remain in the Pennsylvania Lottery Fund and are used to help older people in the state.
