Tickets, tickets… check your tickets!
There is a Powerball ticket that was sold at Cub Foods in Baxter still floating around the Lakes Area worth $50,000. The ticket in question was sold on Wednesday, September 18th and nary a soul has come forth to claim the winnings.
As you will notice, there is also a ticket worth another $50k that was sold at the Holiday Store in Emily on Saturday that is hanging out as well.
Per the Minnesota State Lottery:
Tickets for lotto games (anything printed by a Minnesota State Lottery terminal, like Powerball®, Mega Millions®, Lotto America®, etc.) expire one year from the date of the drawing. If, however, the one-year deadline falls on a weekend, holiday, or a day that Minnesota State Lottery offices are closed due to a legal holiday, you have until the end of the next business day to claim prizes. Prizes claimed by mail must be received by the Lottery within the claim period. The Lottery recommends that players use registered mail to send tickets and ticket claim forms to the Lottery and that players keep a copy of the front and back of any ticket sent.
So, the lucky winners that snagged their lucky numbers in Baxter and Emily still have plenty of time to cash in!
