ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -

The Connecticut Lottery is trying to locate the winner of a $1 million Powerball prize.

Lottery officials said the time is running out on a winning Powerball ticket that was selected in Tolland County during the Feb. 20 drawing. The winning numbers were 11 - 12 - 15 - 16 - 54 and Powerball number 25.

The winner has until Aug. 18. to claim their prize. According to lottery officials, "all draw game tickets expire 180 calendar days from the draw date" and it is the player's responsibility. 

"It's not hard to believe someone hasn't claimed it. One guy comes in and buys like 30 tickets and keep them in a box and just cashes them," said Nathan Rockx.

Players can check their tickets by clicking here, or by the lottery's Facebook page and Twitter account. People can download their app by clicking here. They can also go to "CT Lottery retailer or Lottery Headquarters, where the retailer or the Lottery will validate your ticket through their terminal."
