$10,000 lottery ticket bought in Vancouver yet to be cashed

By , Columbian staff writer

Do the numbers “03, 09, 22 and 24” look familiar? If so, you have until 5 p.m. Tuesday to claim a $10,000 prize.

A winning “Match 4” ticket was purchased last Nov. 18 at the Safeway at 2615 N.E. 112th Ave., according to a Washington Lottery spokesperson, but has not been cashed.

Lottery winners have 180 days after drawing a ticket to collect their earnings. Otherwise, unclaimed money is placed into a reserve that benefits the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account, which invests in educational programs like Washington’s Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program or pays state residents’ college tuition.

There are Washington Lottery offices in Everett, Federal Way, Olympia, Spokane and Yakima where golden ticket bearers can receive their prize. They are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
