A Powerball ticket worth $150,000 is yet to be turned in, according South Carolina lottery officials.

The ticket was sold at Sharpe Shoppe #209 at 126 Community Road in Blythewood in October, according to a South Carolina Education Lottery release. The ticket must be claimed at the Columbia Claims Center before 4 p.m. on April 25 or be mailed and postmarked by that date.

The winning numbers were drawn on Oct. 27, 2018. Those numbers were 8, 12, 13, 19, 27 and Powerball, 4, the lottery’s website says.

The ticket matched four white ball numbers and the red Powerball number. The ticket holder also bought the PowerPlay which made their $50,000 prize triple to $150,000.

If the money isn’t claimed the winnings are deposited in the Education Lottery Account which supports educational programs in South Carolina.
