$1 Million N.J. Powerball Prize Expires Today

Sep 18, 14 $1 Million N.J. Powerball Prize Expires Today

Sept. 18, 2014 – One year ago, one lucky Powerball player from New Jersey matched all five white numbers in the Sept. 18, 2013 Powerball drawing: 7, 10, 22, 32 and 35.

As of today, that player has yet to come forward to claim their $1 million prize, which means that in a few short hours, they’ll lose their chance to call themselves a millionaire.

The New Jersey Lottery said in a press release earlier this month that the mystery winner bought their ticket at a Hudson County Convenience Express store, located at 8401 River Road in North Bergen.

Since the ticket is worth $1 million, the mystery winner will have to take it to New Jersey Lottery headquarters to collect their prize.

If the winner doesn’t show up by the end of the day today, the $1 million prize will go from lucky to lost, but it won’t simply disappear.

While it’s a shame to see someone’s prize go unclaimed, that money makes the rest of us winners!  Thirty percent of unclaimed prize money in New Jersey goes directly to the state’s beneficiaries – public education – then the other 70 percent is put back into the Lottery’s prize pool for for special games and promotions.

You’re probably saying that you’d never leave a $1 million prize unclaimed for a year, but it happens more often than you’d think.  Each year, more than $800 million in prize money goes unclaimed!

LotteryHUB wants to put those prizes back in your pockets.  That’s why we developed our ticket tracking technology.  Enter or scan in your Powerball or Mega Millions numbers, then we’ll check them for you after the drawing you bought your tickets for.

If it looks like you’re a winner, we’ll send you a message to let you know, meaning you’ll never miss out on a prize – big or small – ever again.

The free LotteryHUB app is available for iOS and Android, so download it today!
