Time is running out for the holders of two winning lottery tickets sold in Chicago more than a year ago. LeeAnn Trotter reports.
Time is running out for the holders of two winning lottery tickets sold in Chicago more than a year ago.
The pair of tickets, one worth $100,000 and another worth $250,000, are set to expire in early January.
A winning Lucky Day Lotto ticket sold Jan. 10, 2013, at A&N Amoco, 1551 W. North Ave., matched all five numbers -- 14, 17, 22, 29, 38 -- and is worth $100,000, according to a statement from the Illinois Lottery.
A winning Mega Millions ticket, sold Jan. 11, 2013 at Lucky Mart, 2900 W. 87th St., is worth $250,000 because all five numbers – 24, 29, 30, 34, 56 – were matched, the statement said.
The owner of the Lucky Mart actually renamed the store because so many winning lottery tickets were sold there, including one worth $28 million.
Players have one year from the original drawing date to claim their prize, and both tickets remained unclaimed as of Tuesday, officials said.
Prizes worth more than $600 can be claimed at Lottery prize centers across in Chicago, Des Plaines, Springfield, Rockford and Fairview Heights.
There are currently 30 unclaimed jackpot prizes on the Illinois Lottery's web site, all with different collection deadlines.
