Cash 5 ticket sold in Charlotte worth $270,023 expires soon

November 6, 2023 Posted by NC Lottery at 9:17 AM

Carolina Cash 5 players in North Carolina, especially those around Charlotte, should double-check any tickets they have to see if they are the winner of an unclaimed $270,023 prize.

The ticket was purchased for the May 13 drawing and will expire on Friday, Nov. 10. It was sold at Caton’s Grocery on 5416 Statesville Road in Charlotte.

The ticket matched the numbers on all five white balls to win the $270,023 jackpot. The winning numbers for the drawing were:


“Search everywhere you keep your tickets and double-check any you have to see if you have the winning ticket,” said Mark Michalko, executive director of the lottery. “We hope that whomever purchased this ticket comes forward to claim their prize soon so we can celebrate their big win with them.”

The odds of matching all five white balls in a Cash 5 drawing are 1 in 962,598.

To claim the prize, the ticket must be presented at lottery headquarters in Raleigh by 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 13. The ticket expires Nov. 10 but, since the lottery office is closed that day for Veteran’s Day, a winner could still come in on Nov. 13 to claim the prize. This deadline ends the 180-day period for winners to claim prizes from the May 13 drawing.

To help find the winner, the Education Lottery is sharing news about the unclaimed prize with statewide media, posting alerts on the lottery’s website and social media channels.

I wish man. Struggling financially after my losing my mom. I'm praying I'll find a second job, I'd be thankfully for a fraction of this amount. Frustrating not having family and friends to lean on and people winning this kind of money and then not claiming it

When we will be able to play the double play for Cash Five online? Thank youNC Lottery
Hi, Rainey! At this time, we don't have any set plans to add EZ Match or Double Play to Online Play purchases of Cash 5. However, this is something we've heard from many of our players that they want to see in the future, and the folks that make those decisions read comments like this, so the future is full of possibilities!

Wow! Just can't believe, someone misplaced their ticket. I get mine, and put my magnet on then, attached to refrigerator. Then every morning, I take them down, lay on table and use the checker on my phone to see if I have won. Then enter for my points too! Hope whoever it is, will find it in time!

Can the winner wear a hat or medical mask when they pick up the prize?NC Lottery
Hey there, Mali! Yes - a winner can wear a hat and a medical mask to claim their prize. Winners also aren't required to take photos or share anything more about their win than what's required by law (name, hometown, game played, and amount won).
