On St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2023, someone walked into a CVS to buy a lottery ticket in hopes they may be as lucky as the green they were wearing. They bought a ticket, and later that day the stars aligned as those lucky white balls rolled out: 26, 28, 29, 39, and 49 gaining them a potential MILLION DOLLAR prize.

But here's the kicker—the mysterious winner hasn't stepped forward yet! Can you imagine the leprechauns dancing in delight over this untapped fortune?

The ticket was purchased at a Detroit area CVS Pharmacy located at 18130 W. 10 Mile Road in Southfield, and the lucky owner is running out of time to cash it in. And lets be honest, on Michigan's favorite drinking day, it's easy to believe they may not even know they have the ticket to start.

What happens if someone doesn't claim a lottery ticket in Michigan?

If that lucky person is still out there holding on to the ticket, they're running out of time to claim their ticket. Each winner has a year to claim their winnings before they automatically forfeit the prize. With St. Paddy's Day fast approaching yet again, this lucky duck has until Friday, March 15, at 4:45 p.m. to claim their treasure trove.
