Time running out to claim $100,000 Powerball prize

Winning ticket bought in Dearborn

LANSING – Time is running out to claim a $100,000 Powerball prize from the Michigan Lottery.

The winning ticket from the June 18, 2016, drawing was purchased at the BP gas station, 15500 Michigan Ave. in Dearborn.

The ticket holder should contact the Lottery’s Public Relations Division at 517-373-1237 to make an appointment to claim the prize at the Lottery headquarters in Lansing.

Powerball tickets are valid for one year from the drawing date. Since June 18 falls on a Sunday, the prize must be claimed by 4:45 p.m. June 19. If the prize isn’t claimed before the ticket expires, the money will go to the state School Aid Fund.

If the ticket holder does not come forward, it would be the second major prize to go unclaimed in 2017. In May, a $105,000 Fantasy 5 jackpot went unclaimed.
