NEW ORLEANS, LA. (WVUE) -  If you have some old Powerball tickets stuffed in a drawer, you may want to pull them out and check the numbers.  Officials with the Louisiana Lottery say no one has  stepped forward to claim a $10,000 Powerball prize won on Aug. 31, 2013.

The winning ticket was purchased in New Orleans at Irish Bayou Travel Center Casino on Ridgeway Boulevard. 

The winning ticket matched four of the five whiteball numbers drawn and the red Powerball number. The winning numbers for the Aug. 31 drawing were 02 – 07 – 25 – 40 – 56 and the Powerball number was 20.

The holder of the winning ticket has until 5 p.m. on February 27, 2014. the date of expiration to claim the prize.  Prizes greater than $600 may be claimed at any of the Lottery's five regional offices located throughout the state or at Lottery headquarters in Baton Rouge

"We look forward to the winner coming forward to claim this prize. In the meantime, the individual should treat the ticket as cash," said Lottery President Rose Hudson.

"It is also a good idea to sign the back of the ticket for security purposes."

Winners of the Lottery's draw-style games must claim their prize within 180 days of the drawing. After prizes have passed their redemption deadlines, they are deposited into the Lottery's unclaimed prize fund, which is returned to players in the form of increased payouts on scratch-off games and player promotions.

A list of large unclaimed prizes set to expire in the next 90 days can be found on the Lottery's website at www.louisianalottery.com/unclaimedprizes
