Someone is holding a winning New York Powerball ticket worth $1 million, but it will soon expire. The winning second prize ticket for the December 11, 2013 Powerball drawing, which will expire on December 11, 2014, was sold at Quick Mart at 38 North Middletown Road in Nanuet, Rockland County.

“We are urging players to check their tickets because there is a $1 million winning Powerball ticket that will expire on December 11,” said Gardner Gurney, Acting Director of the Division of the Lottery. “We’re eager to award this large prize to the lucky winner and hope that person is making plans to claim it before it’s too late.”

The winning numbers from the December 11, 2013 Powerball drawing were 01 – 10 – 13 – 18 – 19 Powerball 27. Prizes can be claimed up to a year after the drawing, which means the lucky winner has less than three weeks remaining to collect the $1 million Lottery prize.

Lottery officials recommend that the ticket holder sign the back of the ticket and contact them immediately at 518-388-0563. The winner may claim the ticket at any one of the Lottery’s six Customer Service Centers statewide, including the Fishkill office at Hudson Valley Towne Center, 18 Westage Business Center, Fishkill, NY 12524 or the Manhattan office at 15 Beaver Street, New York, NY 10004.

In the event the prize is not claimed by December 11, the prize money will be returned to the prize pool for future winners. It is used to subsidize prizes for jackpots, promotions and/or special one-time games.

Last year at this time, the New York State Lottery’s kicked off a massive search for a dozen “Missing Millionaires” in the New York City Metro Region.
