The purchaser of a Cash 5 lottery ticket in the Route 1 corridor is a big winner. But they have yet to claim their prize.
According to the Virginia Lottery Office, a ticket purchased at the 7-Eleven located at 5834 North Kings Hwy. was drawn as a $100,000 winning ticket. Unless the person who purchased the ticket comes forward, the ticket will be worthless when it expires at 5 p.m. Oct. 29.
The winning numbers were 6-15-18-23-32. The ticket matched all five numbers. The person who purchased this ticket should contact the Virginia Lottery immediately at 804-692-7777 or 703-494-1501.
"All Virginia Lottery unclaimed prize money goes to the state Literary Fund. The Literary Fund is used solely for educational purposes, such as upgrading technology in schools and teacher retirement funding. Since its inception in 1988, the Lottery has transferred more than $234 million in unclaimed prizes to Virginia’s Literary Fund," stated a recent news release from Virginia Lottery.
Cash 5 drawings are held daily at 1:59 p.m. and 11 p.m. The drawings are broadcasted on TV stations throughout Virginia and streamed live on Virginia Lottery and its Facebook Page.
