Time is running extremely short for a big lottery winner in Michigan to claim a $1 million prize.

According to officials, a lucky player matched the five white balls drawn – 15-29-31-37-43 – in the Dec. 19, 2018 drawing to win $1 million. The winning ticket was bought at the Marathon gas station, located at 27745 Orchard Lake Rd, at 12 Mile Rd. in Farmington Hills.

The ticket is only good for one year from the drawing date, so the prize must be claimed by 4:45 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 19.

If the prize isn’t claimed before the ticket expires, the money will go to the state School Aid Fund.
