Expiring $200,000 Powerball ticket was sold in S. Jersey

Posted: June 30, 2012

Here's a trick no magician would be proud to perform – making $200,000 disappear.

That could happen July 23, when a winning Powerball ticket will turn into a worthless slip of paper.

Eleven months ago, someone placed a bet, so to speak, at the One Stop Shoppe, 103 N.E. Atlantic Avenue, in Magnolia, Camden County.

On July 23, that ticket became worth $200,000, when the first five numbers drawn matched the digits on the ticket. They were 1, 7, 27, 38 and 48. The player missed only the Powerball, which was 30.

Tickets expire after one year, so less than a month is left.

"Anyone holding this winning ticket should sign the back of the ticket, contact Lottery Headquarters at 609-599-5875, or visit a local Lottery retailer as soon as possible to validate the ticket and file their claim," according to a news release from the New Jersey Lottery.
