Winning the lottery seems like a dream come true. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wake up one day with a million bucks in their bank account? While winning the lottery may seem like the best thing ever, the one thing that could make it terrible would be finding out that you won but were too late to claim your prize.
The Michigan Lottery is still looking for a $1 million Powerball winner, and there’s just one day left for the winner to claim their prize. I can’t imagine the horror of finding our you were a winner and missed the deadline, so read on for the details on where this winning ticket was sold and how to claim your prize.
The Michigan Lottery is asking players to check their tickets to see if they are the winner of the $1 million prize. The ticket matched the five white balls drawn – 16-23-28-40-63 – on the May 5, 2021 drawing. The winning ticket was sold at Warren Market at 28069 Mound Rd. in Warren.
Powerball tickets are good for one year to the drawing date. The deadline to claim this prize is 4:45 p.m. on Thursday, May 5. So, what happens if the prize isn’t claimed? According to the Michigan Lottery, the extra money will go to the state School Aid Fund. If you’re the lucky winner, you should contact the Michigan Lottery Player Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to schedule an appointment to collect the award.
