Someone who bought a Powerball ticket in Fairfield County in December would have won $1 million, but that person did not come forward in time.
The winning numbers for the Dec. 5, 2015 drawing were 13-27-33-47-68 and the Powerball was 13 and the winner had only 180 days to come forward.
The deadline for that ticket was on Thursday and, with no winner coming forward, the money will go back to the state.
“The money that wasn’t claimed will go back to the state’s general fund and we’re on pace to return record profits, and we’ll add that to the record profits this year,” Anne Noble, president and CEO of the Connecticut Lottery said.
This is not the only ticket that’s collecting dust instead of interest.
Lottery officials said there are still two unclaimed $1 million tickets that will expire in July from other previous Powerball drawings.
