Lyle winning ticket yet to be claimed


Someone in Lyle is a lot richer—if they ever claim their ticket.

A winning Match 4 lottery ticket was sold in Lyle for the drawing on May 28. The ticket is worth $10,000. And no one has claimed it.

Lottery officials are reminding the public that time is running out for the ticket to be claimed, so check your ticket. The winning numbers from the May 28 drawing for Match 4 were: 07-14-21-23.

For all Lottery draw games, customers have 180 days from the date of a drawing to claim their prizes. The person who purchased the winning Match 4 ticket has until this Saturday, Nov. 24 to validate their ticket.

“Lottery offices will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, Nov. 22, and Friday, Nov. 23,” explains Lottery spokesperson Jean Flynn. “We’re trying to get the word out so the winner knows they can also go to any Lottery retailer before Nov. 24 and ask them to validate the ticket. If the ticket is validated before the cut-off date of Nov. 24, they’ll still be able to come into any regional office to get their prize money after.”

Information about winning numbers can be found at any Lottery retail location, the Lottery’s website at, or on the Lottery’s Winning Numbers Line at (800) 545-7510.

Officials say the most common reasons winning tickets go unclaimed are forgetting to check results and misreading the numbers.

Other than the Lyle ticket, the closest to Klickitat County a winning Washington lottery ticket was sold in recent months was in the Tri-Cities area. In July a Kennewick man won $2 million with a Powerball ticket at the local Fred Meyer store.
