Oregon Lottery Still Waiting for St. Patrick’s Day Raffle Winner to Claim Prize

Thursday, March 24, 2016

 

The Oregon Lottery is still waiting for the $1 million top prize winner from the St. Patrick's Day raffle to claim their prize. The winning number was 005507, and the prize can be claimed at the Lottery office.

The winner has one year from the date of the announcement to claim the prize, so March 17, 2017.

"While it's been just one week since the announcement,historically, the top prize winner for our Raffle games has made a bee line to the Lottery office, often as quickly as the same day the number is announced,"  said Lottery spokesman Chuck Baumann,

The winning ticket was purchased in Dallas.

"Based on the size of the number, we know the person who bought the ticket did so on Jan. 5, most likely before they had lunch. The Raffle game's 250,000 tickets sold out on Feb. 26. That's 55 days after sales began. So the person who bought the winning ticket has had that ticket for some time," said Baumann.

The Lottery uses the exact location the winning ticket was purchased as one of its security checks to validate winning tickets for large prizes. The location is not made public until the ticket has been validated at the Lottery office in Salem.

Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned nearly $10 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements.
