Only Two Months Left for Ontario Fantasy 5 Jackpot Winner
SACRAMENTO – It’s coming down to the wire for a Fantasy 5 jackpot winner who purchased their ticket in Ontario for a Lottery draw four months ago. The big winner matched all five numbers in the February 3 Fantasy 5 draw to claim a jackpot prize worth $173,674. However, the bad news is that they still haven’t claimed their money and they’re running out of time.
The winning ticket was purchased at the 99 Cent Super Store, which is located at 3055 South Archibald Avenue in Ontario. The winning numbers are 19, 9, 7, 13 and 23. The lucky Lottery player has until August 2, 2011 at 5 p.m. to claim their prize. If the prize is not claimed, the funds will be transferred to California schools.
The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their ticket, keep the ticket 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 claim prizes.
