Somewhere in the Tampa Bay area, there’s a lottery ticket worth $140,000.
The Florida Lottery on Thursday said the Fantasy 5 ticket in question “remains unclaimed.”
And there’s a 180-day deadline to claim the current top prize of $140,623, according to the Lottery’s press release. It’s midnight on Aug. 4, just two weeks away.
The winning ticket was sold at Active Food Mart on West Waters Avenue in Tampa.
The winning numbers for the Feb. 6 drawing were 13–15–16–27–30.
“While any Florida Lottery retailer can validate the winning ticket, the top prize must be claimed at a Florida Lottery district office or at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee,” the release said.
Two other Fantasy 5 tickets also are currently unclaimed, according to the Lottery’s website.
One was bought in West Palm Beach, worth $103,486 and set to expire Aug. 5.
Another was purchased in Miami Beach, worth $125,476 and expiring Aug. 15.
If no one comes forward, most of the prize money will go into the state’s trust fund for education, which the Lottery was set up to support, and the rest will go back into the prize money pool, a spokeswoman said.
