Check your numbers: several unclaimed prizes for Powerball/Mega Millions
More than 200 Cash 4 players won upwards of half-a-million dollars in combined winnings from the Sunday, Sept. 4., evening drawing with the winning combination of 3-3-3-3 and the Wednesday, Sept. 7, midday drawing with the winning combination of 1-1-2-2.
“Quads” (four like numbers drawn) and “trips” (three like numbers drawn) are popular number choices for Cash 4 and Cash 3 players. When those numbers are randomly drawn, the payouts are big.
Despite the big week of payouts, several large unclaimed prizes from Powerball® and Mega Millions® are just waiting to be claimed. Players have 180 days from the drawing date to claim valid prizes.
