The holder of a $1 million-winning Powerball ticket purchased in March must redeem it today to get the winnings.
The ticket was bought March 23 at a Speedway station in New Carlisle. Ohio Lottery regulations require winnings to be claimed within 180 days.
"It may have been lost, misplaced or forgotten. It happens," said David Schiavone, manager of the lottery's Dayton region office, in May. "It doesn't happen very often when the prize is as big as this one."
After a total of 29 percent in federal and state taxes, the winner would get $710,000.
The ticket matched all five numbers on the white balls drawn in the game the night of the purchase, a Saturday. The odds of that are one in more than 5 million.
If the prize is claimed, the store is due a $1,000 agent bonus from the Ohio Lottery.
In 2011, $800 million out of $40 billion in total U.S. lottery winnings was not collected.
Schiavone said the winner of the $1 million ticket, per Ohio Lottery regulations, would need to bring it to one of the state's regional lottery offices to redeem it.
