SACRAMENTO – Someone may be in possession of a lottery ticket worth over $200,000 and may not ever know it. A month ago, two lucky tickets from Los Angeles County matched all five Fantasy 5 numbers to split the top prize of $405,104. One of those tickets is still out there, leaving $202,552 unclaimed.
The unclaimed ticket was purchased at the 7-Eleven located at 12515 East Philadelphia in Whittier (Los Angeles County). The ticket successfully matched the numbers 9, 12, 22, 13 and 26.
The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their tickets, keep tickets in a safe place and contact Lottery officials or visit their local Lottery District Office as soon as possible. Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to come forward and claim their prize.
