Lucrative lottery prize remains unclaimed


BRAINTREE (AP) -- A lottery ticket that pays the holder $25,000 per year for life remains unclaimed almost a year after it was sold, and time is running out.

Massachusetts State Lottery officials say the winning Lucky For Life ticket was sold last Sept. 26 at the Circle K store in Whately. If the prize is not claimed within a year, the money is restored to the state’s general fund.

Lottery researcher Lisa McDonald says it’s rare for someone not to claim such a lucrative prize.

She tells The Boston Globe ( ) officials are trying to get the word out so people check those old lottery tickets they have lying around.

A $25,000 winning ticket sold last August at Foster’s Supermarket in Greenfield also remains unclaimed. That winner has a week.
