ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Lottery officials say whoever holds a winning $1 million Powerball ticket has only a few weeks to claim the prize.

The ticket sold in Albuquerque on Saturday, Sept. 27 at a Circle K store on Highway 528 Northwest had winning numbers of 2, 11, 35, 52 and 54.

Lottery workers on Monday put up a banner outside the store to try to alert the winner to turn it in and to generally remind players to double-check their tickets.

If the $1 million ticket is not claimed by the close of business on Dec. 24, the money will go back into the prize pool.

Lottery spokesman Linda Hamlin says the lottery’s largest unclaimed prize was worth approximately $265,000.
