MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (CBS) – A Cash 5 ticket worth $330,000 that was sold in Montgomery County last year is set to expire.
The soon-to-expire Cash 5 ticket correctly matched all five numbers drawn, 14-23-25-33-43, to win $330,000. It was sold at Cole Tobacco Inc. on High Street in Pottstown on January 27th, 2012.
The ticket and prize will expire one year from the date of the drawing. Because that date falls on a Sunday, a claim must be filed by Friday, January 25th.
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 Friday, Jan. 25 at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery’s seven area offices. Claims may be filed at headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at area Lottery offices.
Unclaimed, expired lottery prizes remain in the Lottery Fund and are used to support programs benefiting older Pennsylvanians. Because the Lottery prefers to award prizes that are won, players are encouraged to always check their tickets.
