Someone in the Lutz area is a lottery winner and might not know it.
A $27,447.29 prize is waiting for the owner of the winning ticket from the May 8 Fantasy 5 drawing, according to a release from the Florida Lottery. The deadline to claim the prize is midnight Monday, 180 days after the numbers were selected.
Lottery officials said the winning ticket was a Quick Pick, and that ticket was a free one awarded after the player matched two numbers in a previous drawing. The ticket was from the terminal at the Publix, 18901 State Road 54 in Lutz.
The winning numbers were: 0 1-7-17-22-23.
The ticket needs to be claimed at a Lottery district office or headquarters in Tallahassee. For more information, players can call the Lottery at (850) 487-7787 or visit www.flalottery.com.
If no one claims the prize, 80 percent of it goes to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund, and the remainder moves to a prize pool.
