Unclaimed Lottery Winnings

Look in all your pockets and flip those sofa cushions. Check under the car seats, too. If you bought a Carolina Cash 5 ticket in Apex last year, there could be $168,716 coming to you.

An unclaimed ticket purchased for the Sept. 2, 2008, lottery
drawing expires on March 2. The ticket holder has until 5 p.m. that
day to claim the prize.

The five white balls for that drawing were 5, 9, 17, 23 and 35.

If the prize remains unclaimed, the state lottery will give half of the money to the education fund, and the other half will go back
into prizes for future games.

Lottery spokeswoman Alice Garland says since the lottery started
in March 2006, more than $65 million worth of prizes have gone
unclaimed.
