LOTTERY players in Pennsylvania have been urged to check their tickets because the record $250,000 prize has not yet been claimed.
The ticket holder faces a race against time as the deadline to claim the prize is October 18th.
State lottery officials announced that the prize was purchased on Oct. 18 last year at a Prokopovitch Pitt Stop Market supermarket in Perryopolis — about 30 miles from Pittsburgh, The Center Daily Times reported.
The winning numbers for the Cash 5 ticket were 3, 10, 11, 30 and 35.
According to the Pennsylvania Lottery, the odds of winning the jackpot are about one in 962,598.
Players can receive $200 for matching four numbers and $10 for matching three numbers.
Players will have to defy odds of one in 5,066 if they want to win $200.
The odds of winning the game are one in 10.51.
Officials have announced that the ticket holder can claim their prize either through the mail or at the lottery offices.
However, the ticket holder is advised to make an appointment before showing up and collecting the prize.
The US Sun reported how players in Indianapolis are racing against time to win a lottery prize that gives one player $1,000 a week.
Hoosier Lottery officials announced the ticket was purchased in April and will expire on October 2nd.
