You might have won $24 million and not known it -- but you only have until next week to find out.
A winning ticket for the May 25, 2016 New York Lottery drawing is about to expire, officials said Wednesday.
The ticket was sold at Renu Corp Grocery & Tobacco on Church Street in Tribeca, but no one has claimed the prize. It will expire at the end of the day May 25 unless someone redeems it before then.
Unclaimed lottery prizes are not uncommon, though it is relatively rare for a prize this big to slip through someone's clutches. Earlier this year, New Jersey officials flagged an expiring $1 million ticket.
The lottery said if no one steps forward, the money will go back into the prize pool. Potential winners can call the lottery's Prize Payments Office at (518) 388-3370 for more information.
