(NEW YORK) — A lottery ticket holder in California stands to lose a $63 million jackpot if he or she doesn’t step forward to claim the prize before it expires by the end of the business day Thursday.
The SuperLotto ticket was purchased Aug. 8, 2015. The winning ticket, featuring the numbers 1, 16, 30, 33, 46 and the mega number 24, was sold at a 7-Eleven in Chatsworth.
If the winner fails to claim the prize by Thursday’s deadline, the jackpot would be the third biggest to go unclaimed in U.S. history.
The store where the ticket was bought is even posting signs to get the word out. The business does have surveillance video, but the owners say they’ll only use that footage to confirm the winner.
If no one claims the winnings, the money would go toward the California public schools.
