PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Still no clue as to who holds the winning Powerball ticket with a cash value of more than $77 million, sold in South Philadelphia for the June 22nd drawing.

The winning Powerball ticket, sold at Federal Beer on Federal Street in South Philly, has a cash value of $77.4 million and an annuity value of $135.5 million (see previous story).

“A lot of players have different reasons for coming in at their own time,” says Gary Miller, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania Lottery.  “They might be taking their time to meet with an attorney, perhaps to speak to a financial advisor and get their affairs in order.”

And Miller says there’s really no hurry: Pennsylvania Lottery winners have an entire year to come forward.  (That’s not the case in all states.)

If a Pennsylvania Lottery prize is unclaimed after a year, the money will revert to the lottery fund.

The winning numbers from June 22nd are 13, 19, 23, 33, and 57, and the red powerball is 28.
