Florida Lotto Winning Ticket Worth $192,000 Is About to Expire
Did you play the numbers 8-19-27-28-30 in a Fantasy 5 lotto ticket back on July 30?
Maybe left it in your jeans? In your glove compartment? Under your porn stash? Inside a shoe? In an empty coffee can? On a bus seat? In between the seats in your car with Larry's homework?
Because, if you did, you need to hurry up and claim that sucker, because the $193,282.52 cash prize is set to expire at midnight, January 26.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at the Winn-Dixie located at 1491 S. Dixie Highway in Lantana.
Pretty much any store or gas station that sells Florida Lottery tickets can validate the winner, but the Fantasy 5 top prize must be claimed at a Florida Lottery district office or at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee.
But all of that doesn't matter unless you claim your prize. Because if you don't, the ticket will be meaningless and the money will be void.
Also, the new Flamingo logo will show up to your house and stare a hole into your soul.
Fantasy 5 is a pari-mutuel game in which players win the top prize by matching five of five winning numbers drawn in any order. Additionally, players win cash prizes or a free Quick Pick ticket by matching two, three, or four of the numbers drawn in the official drawing for the date played. If there is no top prize winner, the money in the top prize pool rolls down and is shared among players who match four of five or three of five winning numbers, lottery officials say.
Players can obtain additional information by calling 850-487-7787 or visiting the Florida Lottery's website at flalottery.com.
