A lucky player matched the five white balls drawn – 08-10-21-23-25 – in the Sept. 25, 2017 drawing to win a $1 million prize. The player purchased the winning ticket at the Ionia Marathon, located at 121 North Dexter Street in Ionia.
If anyone discovers they have the winning ticket, they immediately should contact the Michigan Lottery Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237. The lucky winner must claim the prize at Lottery headquarters in Lansing.
Powerball tickets are valid for one year from the drawing date. The prize must be claimed by 4:45 p.m. on Sept. 27. If the prize isn’t claimed before the ticket expires, the money will go to the state School Aid Fund.
If the ticket holder does not come forward, it would be the second major prize to go unclaimed in 2018. In July, a $519,456 Fast Cash Jackpot Slots jackpot went unclaimed.
Powerball plays may be purchased for $2 each at Lottery retailers across the state and online at MichiganLottery.com. A “Power Play” option that multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times to a maximum of $2 million may be added to any Powerball play for only $1.
The Powerball drawing takes place at 10:59 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday and may be watched live online at: http://www.powerball.com. Powerball tickets are sold in 44 states, Washington D.C., U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
