Indiana Lottery makes a claim deadline errorWednesday February 17th 2010
A new appeal is sent out today after the Indiana Lottery makes a claim deadline error for a ticket worth $2.5 million. The Indiana Lottery gave an original deadline of February 12th for the holder of the Hoosier Lottery ticket to come forward. It now appears that this deadline was an error and a new date of February 22nd has been given for the lucky winner to come forward. The ticket was purchased on August 19th 2009 at Meijer Store at 5303 E. Southport Road on the south side of Indianapolis.
If you bought a ticket for the Indiana Lottery from this store on the given date then you may want to check your lottery numbers again. The winning numbers were 4, 5, 17, 30, 38 and 43.
The Indiana Lottery has revealed that a $5 million Hoosier Lottery jackpot went unclaimed in March 2004 along with a staggering $50 million PowerBall Lottery win in September 2002. This can only lead us to repeat the advice that we always give in these kinds of circumstances. When you buy lottery tickets, sign the back immediately and put them in a safe place. However, buying lottery tickets online is by far the safest and easiest way, so we would recommend players to do this wherever possible.
In the meantime, if you think you may hold a lottery ticket for the Indiana Lottery that was purchased at the said store, then you may want to check this ticket, or check it again. Someone is sitting on a fabulous lottery win and would be devastated to miss out on this fabulous opportunity.
