Tick, tick, ticket: 2 days left to claim $200K

It's just a piece of paper with some numbers on it.

It's just a piece of paper with some numbers on it.

The date: June 18, 2008.

The numbers: 9, 12, 31, 39 and 52.

But those digits make it worth $200,000 - if turned in by Thursday.

Friday, that slip won't be worth a dime.

Some Powerball player bought that printout about a year ago at Choi Food & Beer, 3987 Ford Rd. in Philadelphia.

Last month, a Cumberland County, Pa., woman claimed a $400,000 Powerball prize with just a week left.

She found the winner saved in a shoebox after her husband saw a news report about the unclaimed prize.

If you have the Philadelphia winner, first sign the back, making it difficult for anyone else to claim.

Then call the Pennsylvania Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim by Thursday, June 18, at lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County (before 4 p.m.) or at any of the lottery's seven regional offices (till 4:30 p.m.), including one at 700 Packer Ave. in Philadelphia. (215-952-1123).

$87.2 million still unclaimed. Speaking of checking Powerball tickets, no one has turned up with a jackpot-splitting ticket purchased at the end of February at Plymouth Meeting Mall.

Two tickets hit the Feb. 28 jackpot of $174.4 million, and one was purchased there.

Half has already been claimed by a winner in Delaware.

The numbers were 3, 16, 20, 42 and 58, with a Powerball of 7.

Last week's $1 million also unclaimed. Did you buy a Powerball ticket between June 6 and 10 at at the Acme at 907 Paoli Pike in West Chester? If so, and you paid for the Power Play, you better check those numbers.

You may have won $1 million.

No one hit all the Powerball numbers drawn last Wednesday night, but two tickets did have all but the Powerball, plus the Power Play multiplier option.

One was purchased in Montana, the other at the Acme.

With Power Play, matching all the white balls automatically means $1 million.

The matched numbers were 15, 26, 27, 42 and 58, while the (red) Powerball was 37.
