A $1 million lottery prize remains unclaimed in Texas as the deadline approaches. The Texas Lottery announced that a ticket bought in Magnolia on December 1st, linked to a Chevron station, is yet to be claimed. The Texas Lottery, referencing a report by My San Antonio, urges the potential winner to come forward.

In Paris, Texas, another ticket also awaits its winner, expiring on April 20th after being purchased on October 22nd at Tiger Mart. As detailed by WFAA, the Paris ticket matched all the white balls in the drawing, just missing the jackpot by the Powerball. Gary Grief, the Texas Lottery executive director, expressed his hope for the winners to claim their million-dollar prizes before the deadline.

"We hope to celebrate the Texas Lottery player who became a $1 million prize winner before this prize expires," said Grief, emphasizing the urgency. Unclaimed prizes will revert to the state's coffers, designated for funding various programs. Lottery players are encouraged to check their tickets, as they may be unaware of their win.

Winners must visit a claim center or postmark their ticket by April 20th. Grief advises winners to endorse their tickets to secure their winnings. Texans who purchased lottery tickets at Hardin Store Express or Tiger Mart should urgently search for them to avoid missing out on a substantial windfall.
