MIDDLETOWN, Pa. - If you have an old Pennsylvania Lottery ticket laying around, you might want to take a close look at it.
The holder of a winning Cash 5 ticket worth $330,000 from the Jan. 27, 2012, drawing has yet to claim the prize, lottery officials said Monday.
Time is quickly running out. The ticket and prize will expire one year from the date of the drawing, and because that date falls on a Sunday, a claim must be filed by Fri., Jan. 25, lottery officials said.
The ticket correctly matched all five numbers drawn -- 14-23-25-33-43 -- to win $330,000, less 25 percent federal withholding. It was sold at Cole Tobacco Inc., 215 High St. in Pottstown, Montgomery Co.
The Pennsylvania Lottery encourages the ticket-holder to sign the back of the ticket, call the lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim by Jan. 25 at lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin Co., or at any of the lottery's seven area offices.
Unclaimed lottery prizes remain in the lottery fund and are used to support programs benefiting older Pennsylvanians, officials said.
