The New York Lottery’s Yolanda Vega and Gretchen Dizer will be at Star Wines and Liquors in Monroe on Thursday, December 19 at 1:30 p.m. seeking the owner of an unclaimed $1 million Powerball winning ticket that expires on January 5, 2014.
There are currently 11 other New York Lottery draw game players holding unclaimed jackpot tickets of $1 million or more that will expire in 2014. Over the next few months, Yolanda and Gretchen will visit the retail locations in and around New York City where other unclaimed winning tickets were sold in an attempt to find these “Missing Millionaires.”
“A lucky individual’s holiday season could be vastly improved – and they don’t know it yet,” said Gardner Gurney, Acting Director of the Division of the Lottery. “Yolanda and Gretchen are taking a boots-on-the-ground approach to find these ‘Missing Millionaires,’ going directly to the ‘scene of the sale’ in hopes of locating the currently unknown individual.”
The Lottery encourages everyone who bought a New York Lottery draw game ticket, to check their old tickets again, as they could be holding a jackpot winner. Unclaimed tickets expire one year after the game’s drawing.Here are the details for the unclaimed New York Lottery draw game tickets worth $1 million or more:
