Winning $1 million powerball ticket still unclaimed

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A winning $1 million powerball ticket sold in Omaha last month has yet to have a winner come forward to claim their prize.

The August 21st drawing matched all five winning white ball numbers. That ticket was sold at a Casey's General Store at 16960 Evans Plaza. It's the 25th $1 million Powerball prize won in Nebraska since January 2012.

Winning tickets expire 180 days after the drawing, so the winner will no longer be eligible to claim their prize after February 17, 2020. Winnings over $20,000 must be claimed in person at Nebraska Lottery headquarters in Lincoln. This isn’t the first time a Powerball winner has waited to claim their prize. In October 2018 Robert Abraham of Omaha claimed a $1 million Powerball prize shortly before the winning ticket was due to expire.

A $50,000 Belleuve ticket from the August 10th drawing has still been unclaimed and will expire February 6, 2020.
