Check Your Powerball Ticket! $800 Million in Lottery Prizes Went Unclaimed Last Year
So you didn't win the Powerball last night. If you did, you'd be on a private jet to Bora Bora right now..not sitting in your office wondering what to eat for dinner tonight.
Winning tickets for the record $580 million jackpot were bought in Arizona and Missouri. The winning numbers were 5, 23, 16, 22, 29 and the Powerball was 6.
But for the rest of us, the dream may not be TOTALLY over. Make sure to check your ticket. About 70 people will win $1 MILLION second-place prizes for matching all five numbers but not the Powerball.
And experts estimate about 2% of the people who win $1 million in the Powerball tonight will NEVER realize it and NEVER come forward.
There are also prizes like $10,000 for matching four numbers and the Powerball, or $100 for getting four numbers. Those are all worthwhile too.
Believe it or not, in just the past year, there's been about $800 MILLION in unclaimed lottery prizes around the country. Don't be part of THAT statistic.
