CHECK YOUR TICKETS: Time Is Running Out to Claim $7 Million NY Lottery Cash4Life Ticket
Winner Has Only 2 Weeks Left to Claim Prize
Time is running out for someone who bought a New York Lottery Cash4Life ticket last July in Brooklyn that is worth $7,000,000.
The winning ticket for the July 24, 2014 Cash4Life drawing was purchased at Milky Way Deli at 1669 Ralph Avenue in Brooklyn. Prizes can be claimed up to a year after the drawing, which means the lucky winner has only until July 24, 2015 to collect the $7,000,000 Lottery prize.
“Time is running out for the winner of this $7,000,000 prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward to claim it before July 24,” said Gardner Gurney, Acting Director of the Division of the Lottery. “We are urging players to check and double-check their tickets one last time for the chance to claim this $7,000,000 jackpot prize.”
“We encourage our players to always check their tickets as we have hundreds of prizes every drawing including $2,500 prizes and $500 prizes,” Gurney said.
The winning ticket matched all six numbers from the July 24, 2014 Cash4Life drawing: 05 – 20 – 35 – 43 – 48 and the Cash Ball number 03.
Lottery officials recommend that the ticket holder sign the back of the ticket and contact them immediately at 518-388-3370. The winner may claim the ticket at any one of the Lottery’s Customer Service Centers statewide, including the Manhattan office at 15 Beaver Street, New York, NY 10004 and the Long Island office at 45 South Service Road, Plainview, NY 11803.

As is always the case, in the event the prize is not claimed by the deadline, the prize money will be returned to the prize pool for future winners. It is used to subsidize prizes for jackpots, promotions and/or special one-time games.

The New York Lottery continues to be North America’s largest and most profitable Lottery, contributing $3.11 billion in fiscal year 2014-2015 to help support education in New York State. The Lottery’s contribution represents 14 percent of total state education aid to local school districts.
New York Lottery revenue is distributed to local school districts by the same statutory formula used to distribute other state aid to education. It takes into account both a school district’s size and its income level; larger, lower-income school districts receive proportionately larger shares of Lottery school funding.
