Manhattan, NY - Somewhere in Manhattan, a New York Lottery player is a multimillionaire and doesn’t know it yet. And the player only has a few more days to come forward to claim the life-changing prize.

A single winning ticket for the May 25, 2016 Lotto drawing was purchased at Renu Corp Grocery & Tobacco located at 158 Church Street in Tribeca. However, to date, the owner of the ticket has not come forward to claim the prize. The winnings may be claimed up to a year after the drawing, which means the prize expires at the end of the day on May 25, 2017 – next Thursday.

“A lucky New Yorker has a $24 million Lotto payday just waiting – but the winner has to act fast as time is running out,” said Gweneth Dean, Director of the Commission’s Division of the Lottery. “We urge New York Lottery players: Check your pockets. Check your glove box. Look under the couch cushions. If you have this winning ticket, we look forward to meeting you.”

Prizes can be claimed up to a year after the drawing, which means the lucky winner has just about one week to come forward and collect the $24 million Lottery prize.

Lottery officials recommend that the ticket holder sign the back of the ticket and contact them immediately. The winner may claim the ticket at any one of the Lottery’s Customer Service Centers across the state.

As is always the case, in the event the prize is not claimed by May 25, 2017, the prize money will be returned to the prize pool for future winners. It is sometimes used to subsidize prizes for large jackpots, promotions and/or special one-time games.
