Connecticut Lottery officials said there are millions of dollars in unclaimed prizes between Powerball and Lucky for Life games.

They said $3 million in two Powerball top prizes from the Jan. 9, 2016 drawing remain unclaimed.

Winners have until July 7 to come forward before the tickets expire.

The numbers were 16-19-32-34-57 and the Powerball number was 13.  

Of the 249,457 tickets sold in Connecticut for that date, two contained a five number match for the game's second highest prize, according to lottery officials.

The first winning ticket was sold in Fairfield County and is worth $1 million. The second, sold in Hartford County, is worth $2 million.

Also unclaimed, a Lucky for Life $25,000 a year for life prize from Jan. 11.

The numbers drawn were 21-26-28-35-47 and the Lucky Ball was 9.

Lottery officials said that ticket was sold in New Haven County.

They said 13,426 tickets were sold in the state, but only one matched five numbers for the second highest prize.

The winner has until July 9 to claim that prize.

All draw game tickets expire 180 days from the draw date, officials said.

To claim the prize, simply go to a CT Lottery retailer or the headquarters in Rocky Hill.
