Unclaimed $275K Pa. lottery prize about to expire

    Check that ticket again:

    Pennsylvania lottery officials say an unclaimed $275,000 prize will expire in a couple of weeks if the winner does not come forward.

    The winning ticket for the Cash 5 drawing held Feb. 17, 2010, was sold at DSK Corp. in Philadelphia. It is only good for a year.

    The ticket holds the winning numbers 1-3-6-8-18. The jackpot is worth $275,000 minus taxes.

    Lottery officials said Thursday that if a winner does not come forward by Feb. 17, the money will revert to the general lottery fund.

    That fund supports programs benefiting older Pennsylvanians.
