AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - It's "last call" for the winning ticket from the Jan. 1 Lotto Texas drawing for a grand prize worth $12 million.
Monday is the last day the ticket buyer can redeem the ticket sold at a South Shore Shell gas station on Farm Road 518 in League City, near Houston.
The Texas Lottery Commission says the ticket buyer opted for a lump-sum cash payout of more than $7.5 million. The retailer received a check last March for more than $121,000.
A ticket-holder forfeits any claim to a prize beyond 180 days after the drawing. Unclaimed prizes revert back to the state. More than $837 million in unclaimed Texas lottery prizes have reverted since 1995.
