CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – A Powerball ticket sold in West Virginia that was worth $1 million from the Feb. 11 drawing has gone unclaimed.

West Virginia Lottery spokesman Randy Burnside says no one stepped forward by the Aug. 11 deadline. Ticketholders have 180 days from the drawing date to claim their prizes. The ticket matching five of the six Powerball numbers was sold on Wheeling Island.

Burnside says the retailer will still receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the ticket, while the unclaimed money will be shifted to a fund for future prizes.

Burnside says the lottery also is waiting for someone to claim a match-5 ticket sold in Poca for the Aug. 2 Powerball drawing.
