Someone who bought a lottery ticket in Mandeville, Louisiana back in January has yet to cash it in and could lose their $50,000 winnings if they don't do so by July 18, 2024.

According to the Louisiana Lottery, no one has yet to step up and claim the Powerball prize won on Jan. 20, 2024.

The winning ticket was purchased at Diaz Market on Highway 59 and Lonesome Road in Mandeville.

The winning ticket matched four of the five white-ball numbers plus the red Powerball number to score the $50K.

“We look forward to the winner coming forward to claim this prize. In the meantime, the individual should treat the ticket as cash,” said Lottery President Rose Hudson. “It is also a good idea to sign the back of the ticket for security purposes.”

The deadline is approaching.

The person with the winning ticket has until 5:00 pm on the date of expiration to claim their prize.

So you won big. Where do you pick up your money?

Powerball prizes larger than $5,000 must be claimed at one of the Lottery's five regional offices located throughout the state or at the Lottery headquarters in Baton Rouge by presenting the original printed ticket.

How long do you have to claim your prize?

Winners of the Lottery's draw-style games must claim their prize within 180 days of the drawing.

What happens if a prize is not claimed by the deadline?

Once the redemption deadline has passed and no one has claimed the prize, that money is deposited into the Lottery's unclaimed prize fund, which is returned to players in the form of increased payouts on instant-win games and player promotions.
