Some of us have our thermostat set to happy. Some are set to depressed. How does winning the lottery swing that up or down?
A millionaire could be walking around El Paso without knowing it.
An unclaimed $1 million Powerball ticket sold in January is set to expire July 23, the Texas Lottery said Thursday.
The Quick Pick ticket matched all five numbers but not the Powerball number in the Jan. 25 drawing, the Texas Lottery said.
The five numbers drawn were 2-9-17-36-67, but the ticket did not match the Powerball number, 18, the lottery said.
The lottery reported that the winning ticket was purchased at Big Savers Market, 3630 Alameda Ave., next to the Alameda Laundromat in South El Paso.
The winner has until 5 p.m. July 23 to claim the $1 million prize.
Lotto winners can claim the prize at a claim center by requesting an appointment online at www.txlottery.org/appointment or by calling 800-375-6886. There are claim centers in more than a dozen Texas cities, including El Paso.
Lottery drawing tickets expire on the 180th day following the drawing.
