TIPTON, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Lottery officials are reminding players to double-check their tickets, noting two winning Powerball prizes haven’t been claimed, months after the drawings.
Both tickets were drawn in the eastern Iowa city of Tipton.
A $1 million winning ticket was purchased at a Kum & Go on Nov. 16, 2013. A $10,000 winning ticket was purchased at Family Foods on Jan. 22.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports the winner has until Nov. 17 to claim the $1 million prize at the lottery’s Des Moines headquarters. The winner of the $10,000 prize has until Jan. 22, 2015, to claim the winnings at any lottery office.
Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich says he hopes the winning tickets weren’t thrown away.
Unclaimed money goes to the lottery’s prize pool for future games and promotions.
