Lottery Ticket Worth $1 Million to Expire Next Month

MIDDLE SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP -- Last year, someone bought a "Cash 4 Life" ticket inside a Price Chopper near Marshalls Creek.

The ticket was a big winner! One million big ones to be exact.

But someone has yet to claim the ticket.

"Well, I think the person that bought it may have misplaced it or maybe they had given it to someone and didn't realize it was a winner or may have thrown it in a trash can. They might be scrambling now saying I had those numbers," said Robert Rowan of East Stroudsburg.

Now time is running out and the winning ticket will expire next month.

Whoever bought it matched all five Cash 4 Life numbers drawn.

The numbers: 03, 07, 14, 19, 25.

"Isn't that a terrible thing? A million dollar ticket and no money. Oh, my goodness, what I would do with a million dollars. I would have a lot of fun with it," said Rowan.

We spoke to some people who always play the lottery and always check their tickets. They feel sorry for the person that is holding on to that million dollar ticket and hope they can get in to claim it soon.

"I hope it's my mom. I will go and ask her. I don't play the lottery so I better ask her, but yeah, I hope whoever has it does find it in time," said Michelle Looknanan of East Stroudsburg.

William Elwood from Bushkill buys tickets here at the Price Chopper often.

He thinks it will be unfortunate if the ticket expires, but a good lesson to all who play to check your tickets.

"Well it's just sad. Especially if they are in need of cash," said William Elwood of Bushkill.

The winning ticket will expire on September 14, 2016.

If no one files a claim by that date, the money will stay in the lottery fund and will be used to support programs that benefit older Pennsylvanians.
