Unclaimed Powerball jackpot
Record Powerball winners is idle for 4 months
USA PowerBall lottery representatives from the State of New Jersey are still waiting for the holder of the unclaimed Powerball ticket which was lucky to scoop the $429.6 million jackpot last Saturday on 7 May 2016. According to the official statistics, the jackpot winners tend to claim the money within 2-3 weeks from the draw date. Still, the speaker of the Californian lottery office stated that there was very little chance that the third winner of the huge $1.6 bn pot (raffled in January 2016) will show up in time to claim the money in this way adding another partly unclaimed Powerball jackpot. The winners from the state of Florida and Tennessee were rather swift to provide their winning ticket and get their shares of the prize in full. The player who bought the life-changing ticket in South California is still unknown. According to the lottery regulations, the prize is to be claimed within a year from the day of the draw. Otherwise, the money will be sent to the social welfare development foundation, for the local educational system development.
Unclaimed Powerball ticket
According to the representative of Powerball office in California Alex Traverso, the jackpot winners tend to take time for several weeks before claiming the money as they usually apply for the professional financial and legal advice. The $520 mln unclaimed Powerball jackpot winner is more likely just unaware of his or her huge luck as one has to be extremely patient to wait for so long keeping anonymity for 4 months already.
