Lotto winner's identity still unknown

It has been 17 days since a winning Super Lotto Plus ticket was sold in Toledo, but the money still hasn't been claimed.

The winner has until 5 p.m. June 21 to turn in the winning ticket, which was purchased at Food Town, 3324 Secor Rd. No one has come forward to pocket the prize from the Dec. 23 drawing, said lottery spokesman Mike Bycko.

That's not unusual, he said. “We've had people come in on the 179th day,” he said. Some winners, he said, wait for the excitement to subside. Others want to consult with lawyers, financial planners, and family members.

The winning ticket is worth $11 million, payable in annual installments of $366,667 over 30 years, before taxes. The combination: 1, 5, 11, 14, 16, and 44.

The last time the lottery had an unclaimed jackpot was in 1998 when the winner failed to show up for the $4 million jackpot, Mr. Bycko said.
