WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- An unclaimed Powerball ticket worth $200,000 that was bought in Winston-Salem is about to expire unless the winner steps forward.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports that the ticket holder has until 5 p.m. Thursday to produce the winning ticket. The ticket was purchased for the March 8 drawing at Parker's Stop & Shop on Reidsville Road. The numbers are 17, 29, 31, 34 and 49.
If not claimed, the Lottery Act designates that half of the prize money will be distributed to the Education Lottery Fund. The other half will go back into prizes for future games.
