COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - Someone has missed out on a big prize after a $200,000 Powerball was not claimed.
Thursday was the deadline for the winner of a November Powerball prize to be claimed. Kentucky Lottery officials say winning tickets must be claimed 180 days from the drawing. As the deadline came and went at 5 p.m. on Thursday, no one came to claim their winnings.
The money will now go into a reserve fund to cover up any potential shortfalls to the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship Program. The maximum annual KEES award is $2,500 dollars, so the money could provide more that 80 grants to Kentucky's students.
