A jackpot Cash4Life ticket bought in Brooklyn last summer is set to expire Friday, despite the New York Lottery's best efforts to find the big winner.
Earlier this week, the lottery released goofy posters resembling "wanted" signs for the winner of the $7 million-winning ticket purchased a year ago at the Milky Way Deli on Ralph Avenue in Canarsie.
One of the wanted posters features a stick-figure drawing of the winner, while another shows a hand-drawn rendition of the winner.
If no one claims the prize, the money will be returned to the prize pool for future winners, the New York Lottery says.
"We are urging players to check and double-check their tickets one last time for the chance to claim this $7 million jackpot prize," Gardner Gurney, Acting Director of the Division of the Lottery, said earlier this week.
The winning ticket matched all six numbers from the Cash4Life drawing on July 24, 2014: 05 - 20 - 35 - 43 - 48 and the Cash Ball number 03.
The ticket holder is encouraged to call 518-388-3370, visit one of the New York Lottery's customer service centers in Manhattan and Long Island, or visit the lottery's website to find out more.
