Expiring ticket alert in Stafford
From the Virginia Lottery:
Would you throw away $258,000? Someone may be on the verge of doing just that.
A Cash 5 with EZ Match ticket matched all five numbers in the March 16 drawing to win a $258,000 jackpot. Since then, no one has come forward with that winning ticket to claim the prize.
By law, winning tickets in Virginia expire 180 days after the drawing. That means the ticket will become worthless at 5:00 p.m. (close of business) on Monday, September 12.
The ticket was bought at the Giant Food at 317 Worth Avenue in Stafford.
The winning numbers for that drawing were 10-21-27-29-38.
Unclaimed prizes, by law, go to Virginia’s Literary Fund, which provides low-interest loans to localities for public school construction, renovations and technology upgrades.
Whoever has the winning ticket should contact the Virginia Lottery immediately or present the winning ticket at a Virginia Lottery customer service center or prize zone.
