You always wonder, what happened to the ticket. Did the person die before the winning numbers were picked, was it lost, did the person even forget they had purchased lotto tickets. I'm sure the store where it was bought has signs telling anyone who bought a ticket there around the date it was selected to check. Most likely the person who bought it lost the ticket and is still working the same shitty job they had before they won. Like a magical horse-drawn carriage that transforms into a pumpkin at midnight, someone's winning $63-million lottery ticket is about to turn into a worthless scrap of paper, according to California Lottery officials. A winning SuperLotto Plus ticket purchased at a Chatsworth convenience store in August has yet to be redeemed at a California Lottery office, even though a deadline is fast approaching. If the lucky winner fails to show up at a lottery office by 5 p.m. Thursday, they will forfeit the jackpot, officials say.

Nobody has even shown up with a fake ticket trying to claim the cash, officials said. The California Lottery put out a public call in November, warning the ticket holder that they had 180 days to claim the $63-million jackpot. Now, the clock is really winding down. Officials say the golden ticket was sold on Aug. 8 at a 7-Eleven store, at 20871 Lassen St. The winning numbers are 46-1-33-30-16 with a Mega number of 24. If a winner does not come forward, the multimillion-dollar cash prize would be the largest unclaimed SuperLotto Plus ticket in California. The current largest unclaimed prize is $28.5 million for a ticket sold in San Lorenzo, Ca., in 2003. However, if the winner is someone who just likes to cut things a little too close, and walks into a lottery office by the close of business Thursday, they will have the option of receiving a lump-sum, one-time payment of $39.9 million, or $63 million in payments over 30 years. The retail store owner who sold the ticket will still receive $315,000, even if no one shows up to claim the $63 million. Lottery officials say they also have yet to hear from the person who walked into a Chino Hills 7-Eleven last month and purchased a winning ticket in a massive $1.6-billion Powerball drawing. In that case, however, the winner still has a year to claim their $528-million share of the jackpot before the ticket turns to trash.
