Winning lottery ticket to expire if prize goes unclaimed

GRIFFITH, Ind. (AP) — A winning Powerball lottery ticket sold in northwestern Indiana will expire Monday if the $50,000 prize goes unclaimed.

The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that the ticket must be redeemed by 5 p.m. Monday at the Hoosier Lottery headquarters in Indianapolis.

The ticket for the March 14 Powerball drawing was purchased at a Speedway gas station in Griffith.

While it wasn't a winner of the big cash prize, it secured a smaller payout by matching four of the five non-Powerball numbers drawn.

The winning numbers for that drawing were: 6, 12, 24, 41, 68 and Powerball 9.

Lottery rules require all draw game prizes be claimed within 180 days of the drawing.
