Malone Bald: A $6 million lottery ticket with $3 million in winnings could land a winner
A $5.5 million lottery jackpot has landed in a parking lot in Malone, Indiana, after a $1.5 billion jackpot went unclaimed for two weeks.
The Malone Herald-Star reports that a woman who lives in the neighborhood said she heard about the jackpot on a phone call to the county clerk’s office in early November and went to check it out.
The woman was told that she had won the jackup, but that she could not use the money because the county has not declared the winnings.
She filed a complaint with the county in January.
The county did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The jackpot is believed to be worth about $3.5 to $5 million.
The lottery is running from now through January 31.
It’s not yet clear how much money has been won.
