Imagine knowing that someone, somewhere has purchased a lottery ticket somewhere and then not bothered to check their numbers, only to find out that their lottery ticket that is propping up the coffee table leg is worth a cool $24 million dollars.
Have you ever bought a lottery ticket and subsequently not checked it?
Think carefully: Did you by chance try your luck in the New York Lottery at a tiny bodega at 158 Church St. between Reade and Chambers streets in Tribeca around this time last year?
Someone bought a winning jackpot ticket at the shop, called Renu Corp Grocery & Tobacco, on May 25, 2016, according to lottery officials. (They won't say what time of day "for security purposes," but the shop owner told AM New York it was sold sometime in the morning hours.)
The ticket is worth $24 million. However, if someone doesn't conjure it by midnight this Thursday, May 25, all those potentially life-changing riches will be thrown right back into the general Lotto pot.
These were the winning numbers on the ticket:
5 - 12 - 15 - 22 - 25 - 35
Around $74 million in unclaimed New York Lotto loot reportedly expired last year.
The owner of the bodega who sold Tribeca's soon-to-expire ticket, Babuby Patel, said in an interview with AM New York that he suspects an out-of-towner or other non-regular customer bought it, as anyone who frequents his shop would have come forward by now.
An "EXPIRING SOON!" flyer with info on the missing ticket is now displayed prominently next to the cash register at Renu Corp.
