iStockphoto/Thinkstock(AUSTIN, Texas) — A Texas lottery ticket worth $12 million went unclaimed on Monday, the last day on which its owner could have claimed the prize, meaning the winnings go towards Texas public schools.
According to the Texas Lottery Commission, the ticket was purchased for the Jan. 1 drawing, and matched all six numbers. The winner purchased the winning ticket from the South Shore Shell in League City, Texas.
The winner had until 5 p.m. on Monday to claim the ticket, and when no one did so, the state lottery commission posted to its Twitter account that the funds would be directed to the Foundation School Fund, which supports public schools in Texas.
