Instants MONOPOLY Twitter and Instagram Competition Terms and Conditions

State gaming officials are asking the mystery winner to come forward by a Sunday deadline. The ticket for the Aug. 25, 2012, drawing was sold at a Westchester County deli, the Playland Market in Rye, about 30 miles north of New York City. The winning numbers are 1-6-7-20-49 with Powerball 23. The deli put a sign in its window with the lucky numbers, hoping to find the customer who bought the ticket last year. Winners have up to one year to claim the prize. New York Lottery spokesman Lee Park says the deadline will be extended for one week in case someone mailed in their ticket. As long as the ticket is postmarked by Aug. 25, it's valid. If someone were to submit the winning ticket in person on Monday, lottery officials would consider honoring it because the deadline falls on Sunday. A winner may also present their ticket at New York's seven lottery customer service centers. If no one claims the prize, the money will be returned to the lottery pool. The highest unclaimed jackpot in New York Lottery history $68 million came with a ticket sold in Brooklyn in 2002. In the past four months, winners statewide have failed to claim nearly $28 million in drawing-game prizes before they expired. And last year, there were more than $65 million in expired winnings. On $1 million in winnings, the take-home pay is about $600,000 after federal taxes.
