It’s always such a pity to hear of a winning Powerball ticket, but no winner to go with it. For this unfortunate soul, their Powerball ticket could be at the bottom of the garbage, in a glove compartment, or even tossed into the laundry by accident, never to be seen again. Regardless of what the winner’s situation is, the fact of the matter is that they are missing out on a lot of money.
The winning Powerball ticket was bought in Eau Claire in September last year. The winnings were worth $1 million, but because they missed the deadline of March this year, they prize has been forfeited and donated toward property tax relief.
“The winner did not come forward,” explained the communications director of the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. It’s likely we’ll never know the true story behind why this winner never came forward, but the most probable reason is that they simply lost it or forgot to check the numbers on it.
The department said that they made advertisements about the deadline approaching for the winner to redeem their ticket. It was bought on the 23rd of September from a Kwik Trip in Eau Claire. The deadline for the Powerball winnings was the 21st of March, this year. But it seems like unclaimed winnings in Wisconsin are a frequent occurrence.
Since the year 1997, the total sum of $57 million in lottery winnings has gone unclaimed. These winnings include Powerball, Mega Millions, Megabucks, and Supercash, but not scratch cards. Most of these lost winnings are due to lost tickets or apathy for collecting prizes, even if they aren’t a jackpot prize.
A lottery win is a tremendous thing to happen to you, so make sure you don’t miss out on a single cent of your winnings that you could put towards more tickets to increase your chances. Luckily for you, you’re on the best website to maximise your luck and take care of all your winnings.
Best of luck with your future Powerball online draws!
