Jackpots are really interesting as well as life-changing. At times when people forget to claim their prizes, it becomes difficult for the lottery company to locate them. It is the responsibility of the player to claim his or her prize on time. People tend to forget about the draw dates and this further leads to unclaimed winning prizes. In a recent development, a Jackpot winner claimed his prize just two days before the expiration period. It was a whopping prize of $14.25 million. The lottery authorities are happy that they finally got the winner.
The ticket is from Abilene and Texas Lottery was further making all the efforts to locate the winner. The winner wants to stay anonymous. He has the option to reveal his identity or further stay anonymous. Kim Fowlkes, the trustee of AHSODESKA Trust took the prize on behalf of the winner. From this draw of June, the winning numbers are 34, 4, 6, 54 and 3. If the ticket would have expired on Sunday then it would stay in the fund to help elderly people.
This is a rare occurrence where people claim their win in the last few days. It turns out to be quite interesting as the prize goes to the person who deserves it. A prize money of $14.25 million can change the life of a person. It will help the winner to plan his investments wisely and further plan out his expenses. Most of the people take an early retirement after winning the huge sum of money.
The winner only gets 180 days to claim his or her prize. This time the player came on the 178th day to finally claim the Jackpots prize. It is interesting to see that this player is requesting “minimal publicity” and he is further going for the lump sum payment option.
