A Michigan Lottery player is sitting on a winning Powerball ticket worth $1M, and it expires next month.

The winning ticket from the May 5, 2021 drawing was sold at the Warren Market, located at 28069 Mound Road in Warren. The winning ticket matched the five white balls drawn: 16-23-28-40-63.

The winner should contact the Michigan Lottery Player Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to schedule an appointment to collect the big prize. The prize must be claimed at the Lottery’s headquarters in Lansing.

Powerball tickets are valid for one year from the drawing date. The prize must be claimed by 4:45 p.m. on May 5.

If the prize isn’t claimed before the ticket expires, the money will go to the state School Aid Fund.

Powerball plays may be purchased for $2 each at Lottery retailers across the state and online at MichiganLottery.com. A “Power Play” option that multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times to a maximum of $2 million may be added to any Powerball play for only $1. For an additional $1 per play, Double Play may be added to a Powerball ticket, giving players a second chance to win up to $10 million in the nightly Double Play drawing.
