Last Chance for $1 Million Powerball Winner To Come Forward

BOISE, Idaho - Tomorrow at 6 p.m. Mountain Time, a winning Powerball ticket worth $1 million will expire if the holder of the ticket does not arrive in Boise at Idaho Lottery Headquarters to claim their prize.  The winning ticket was sold for the March 6, 2010 Powerball draw from Huskey's in Irwin, Idaho located near the Idaho-Wyoming border.  The ticket matched the first five numbers from that night's draw, but not the Powerball itself.  The winning numbers for that night were 10, 29, 33, 41, and 59. The Powerball number was 15.

"Time is of the essence for the holder of the ticket to come forward and claim their $1 million prize," said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. "At the close of business tomorrow, September 2, 2010, if no one has brought the ticket in for validation, the ticket will expire and we will be unable to pay the claim."

The winning ticket in question does have the Powerball multiplier PowerPlay.  PowerPlay is an additional $1 at the time of purchase that multiplies non-jackpot winning tickets up to $1 million.  This ticket is a "Match 5" ticket meaning it matched every number but not the Powerball. This type of winning ticket without the PowerPlay is worth $200,000.  Since a change to Powerball in January 2009, a "Match 5" ticket with the PowerPlay multiplier is automatically worth $1 million.

"Too many times we've seen players think they did not have a winning ticket because they did not match the Powerball number itself," added Anderson. "In this case, the winning ticket matched every number but the Powerball number and with the PowerPlay, is worth $1 million."

If the prize goes unclaimed, the winning amount will ultimately benefit the Idaho Lottery's beneficiaries, the public schools and permanent buildings of Idaho.

Over the past few years, two other "Match 5" Powerball tickets have gone unclaimed, each worth $200,000.  One was from Albertsons in Nampa from April 2006 and the other was from Malad City in Oneida County in January 2008.  Both of the tickets matched the first five numbers, but neither of those two tickets had the PowerPlay option.
