Is It You? Unclaimed Prizes Up for Grabs – Tickets Sold in Evergreen and Westminster
DENVER – Two tickets, worth nearly $1 million, have yet to be claimed. They were sold within 35 miles of each other. The two unclaimed prizes include one Powerball ticket and one Cash 5 jackpot.
One $800,000 Powerball ticket matched five of the five numbers, but not the Powerball number. The player automatically won $200,000, and multiplied the prize by purchasing the Power Play option for an extra dollar. The Power Play number drawn that night was 4.

Proceeds from the Colorado Lottery’s games - Scratch, Lotto, Powerball and Cash 5 - stay in Colorado to improve the quality of life in the state. In 2006, more than $120 million was returned to Colorado. Since the lottery started in 1983, more than $1.8 billion has been returned to the state.
The Lottery proceeds are distributed to three primary beneficiaries: Great Outdoors Colorado, Conservation Trust Fund and Colorado State Parks. These organizations then provide grants and direct funding for parks, recreation, open space acquisition, trails, wildlife and conservation education.
