Fliers Distributed in Brooklyn Neighborhood Where Lucky Ticket Was Sold
Today (Friday) is the last day for someone out there who is sitting on a $7,000,000 New York Lottery prize, and the Lottery continues to search everywhere for this “missing millionaire.”
A lucky Lottery player purchased the jackpot-winning ticket for the July 24, 2014 Cash4Life drawing at Milky Way Deli at 1669 Ralph Avenue in Brooklyn. Prizes can be claimed up to one year after the drawing, which means the winner only has until the end of the day today to collect the jackpot Lottery prize.
The Lottery has canvassed the Brooklyn neighborhood around the Milky Way Deli with fliers ‘Have You Seen Me?’ and ‘Is This You?’ fliers to try to find the winner of this lucky ticket, as well as a social media video to attract attention to the missing ticket (see links below).
“This is the absolutely last chance to find the winner of this $7,000,000 jackpot prize,” said Gardner Gurney, Acting Director of the Division of the Lottery. “This is a last-call to all players: check and double-check your tickets one last time before it is too late.”
The winning ticket matched all six numbers from the July 24, 2014 Cash4Life drawing:
05 – 20 – 35 – 43 – 48 and the Cash Ball number 03.
Lottery officials recommend that the ticket holder sign the back of the ticket and contact them immediately at 518-388-3370. The winner may claim the ticket at any one of the Lottery’s Customer Service Centers statewide, including the Manhattan office at 15 Beaver Street, New York, NY 10004 and the Long Island office at 45 South Service Road, Plainview, NY 11803.

As is always the case, in the event the prize is not claimed by the deadline, the prize money will be returned to the prize pool for future winners. It is used to subsidize prizes for jackpots, promotions and/or special one-time games.

About the New York Lottery
The New York Lottery continues to be North America’s largest and most profitable Lottery, contributing $3.11 billion in fiscal year 2014-2015 to help support education in New York State. The Lottery’s contribution represents 14 percent of total state education aid to local school districts.
New York Lottery revenue is distributed to local school districts by the same statutory formula used to distribute other state aid to education. It takes into account both a school district’s size and its income level; larger, lower-income school districts receive proportionately larger shares of Lottery school funding.
