2 lottery tickets worth thousands set to expire

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two $10,000 Powerball lottery tickets purchased in Louisiana are set to expire next month.

Lottery officials say no one has claimed the prizes won Feb. 15. The winning tickets were purchased at Brothers Food Mart on Jefferson Highway in Jefferson and Tallulah Truck Stop on Highway 65 in Tallulah.

Each ticket expires Aug. 14.

The Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1tSG97j ) the winning tickets matched four of the five numbers drawn and the Powerball. The numbers were: 2, 9, 14, 21, 23 and Powerball 3.

The holders of the winning tickets have until 5 p.m. Aug. 14 to claim their prizes. Prizes not claimed within the 180-day deadline are deposited into the Louisiana Lottery's unclaimed prize fund, which goes to players in the form of increased payouts on scratch-off games and player promotions.
