Rye, New York (CNN/WSYR-TV) - If the winner of a New York lottery ticket does not claim the $1 million on Sunday, the money will go back into the pool for future winners, according to state lottery officials
The winning ticket was bought at the Playland Market in Rye, New York on August 25, 2012.
Winners have up to one year to claim their prize.
New York Lottery officials are urging players to check their tickets for the winning numbers: 1-6-7-20-49, Powerball 23.
If someone has the winning ticket, the person should come forward before the ticket expires.
To claim the money, the winner must present the ticket at any one of New York's seven customer service centers during business hours.
Since the one-year anniversary of the ticket's purchase falls on a Sunday, the winner would technically need to have presented the ticket by the close of business Friday, said Christy Calicchia, a spokesperson for the New York Gaming Commission.
It is unclear how the situation would be handled if the ticket were to be turned in on Monday, she said.
Lottery winners may also turn in winning tickets by mail. It will be accepted as long as the ticket is postmarked by August 25.
Rye is about 30 miles north of New York City in Westchester County.
