$25,000 a year for life prize remains unclaimed

A North Dakota Lucky for Life ticket from the Aug. 14, 2017 draw remains unclaimed, according to the North Dakota Attorney General’s office. The ticket won big by matching five white balls, winning $25,000 a year for life. The winning numbers were 4, 8, 15, 17, 39 and the Lucky Ball was 2.

Winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize. The winning Lucky for Life ticket expires Feb. 10. No one has contacted the Lottery office to claim the prize.

The lucky ticket was sold between Aug. 11 and Aug. 14, at Hamster Oil, 202 South Street West, in Michigan. The player with the winning ticket will have the option to receive an annuity payment of $25,000 a year for life (minimum of 20 years) or a lump sum cash payment of $390,000.

“This is a large prize to not have been claimed as of yet,” said Randy Miller, director of the North Dakota Lottery. “We are doing everything we can to alert the public that this prize is still unclaimed. We encourage players to promptly check their tickets.”
