Check those lotto tickets Ark-La-Tex!

Someone our great state could be sitting on a million dollars, and they don't even know it.

A few weeks ago we told you about a million dollar unclaimed lotto ticket in our state. Now, the clock is ticking as the ticket is set to expire on Thursday. A one-million dollar Powerball ticket bought at the Ideal Mart in New Orleans is close to expiring, becoming one of the highest jackpots to go unclaimed in Louisiana.

Louisiana Lottery spokesperson Dustin Annison says if you have the winning ticket from the August 25th drawing, high tail it to the capital city.

“Whoever holds the winning ticket has until 5 o’clock (Thursday) to claim the prize at Lottery headquarters on Laurel Street in Baton Rouge.”

So if you have a Powerball ticket laying around, check it right away and get your money!

The winning number for the August 25th drawing was 20-25-54-57-63 and the Powerball number was 08.
