STALLINGS, NC (AP) — Who wants to be a millionaire? Apparently not the owner of a winning North Carolina Lottery ticket.

The Charlotte Observer reports that a $1 million ticket was sold in the Union County town of Stallings in August. But no one has claimed the prize.

If the winner doesn’t show up at lottery headquarters in Raleigh by 5 p.m. Wednesday, the ticket will expire. Half the money will go to the lottery’s education fund and the rest will go to Medicaid.

Cashier Jessica Massey says customers at the convenience store where the ticket was sold have been constantly asking about it. But no one has produced the winning numbers.

It would be the state lottery’s first unclaimed million-dollar winner.
