AUSTIN, Texas — Check your pockets, purses and junk drawers because you could be a millionaire and not even know it! 

Someone who bought a winning Powerball ticket in Paris, Texas last year hasn't claimed their $1M prize yet and the clock is ticking. 

The deadline to collect the money is Thursday, April 20, at 5 p.m. 

The ticket was sold at Tiger Mart 75, located at 3070 N.E. Loop 286 in Paris, on Oct. 22, 2022. Paris is in Lamar County, a couple of hours northeast of Dallas.

The Quick Pick matched all five white ball numbers which were 19-25-48-55-60, but not the red Powerball number of 18. 

The ticket holder can claim the prize at any Texas Lottery® claim center

You can also mail in the winning ticket, along with a claim form, which must be postmarked on or prior to the April 20 ticket expiration date and sent to:

Texas Lottery Commission

ATTN: Austin Claim Center PO Box 16600

Austin, TX 78761-6600

“We encourage our Powerball players to take another look at their tickets, and if your numbers match, sign the back of the ticket before claiming your prize at a Texas Lottery claim center,” said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery. “We hope to celebrate the Texas Lottery player who became a $1 million prize winner before this prize expires.”

Unclaimed prizes revert back to the state for programs authorized by the Texas Legislature.
