Everyone is talking about the HUGE Mega Millions jackpot that’s well over $1 billion, but someone in Colorado is already a big lottery winner, and they may not even know it! 

 The Colorado Lottery has an unclaimed winning ticket that is worth $50,000.

According to the lottery, a Powerball ticket purchased back in February has been sitting unclaimed for several months. Per the lottery rules, players have 180 days to claim their winnings, and this specific ticket expires this Sunday, Aug. 6.

The ticket was purchased on Feb. 6 at the Huck Finn Exxon at 1517 Florida Road in Durango.

Colorado players have 180 consecutive days to claim their winnings. If the 180 days expire and the player doesn’t come forward, the winning amount is distributed to the Colorado Lottery’s proceed partners: Great Outdoors Colorado, the Conservation Trust fund and Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
