What Will Happen If The Powerball Winner Doesn’t Claim Their Prize

Melburnians were so excited to find out the $55 million Powerball winner bought their ticket in Brunswick, but are puzzled as to the whereabouts of the lucky person.

We were wondering what will happen to fortunes that aren’t claimed, so we hunted down the info...

Oz Lotteries says in Victoria, lotto prizes don’t expire. However, after six months the prize will be transferred to the state revenue office. The winner can still claim their prize there.

We are much luckier than other states. In Western Australia, the prize is forfeited after 12 months!

We are hoping the winner comes forward soon. We can only imagine the look on their face when they find out!
