$24 million Florida lottery ticket sold in November is still unclaimed

If you happened to be driving through Naples in mid-November and bought a lottery ticket, do some double-checking.

The Florida Lottery announced today that a $24 million Lotto jackpot ticket remains unclaimed. The 180-day limit to claim the top prize expires at midnight May 11.

In case you don't remember, here were the numbers: 07 – 11 – 20 – 30 – 45 – 53. You know, if you had a 53-year-old son born on July 20 and a 45-year-old daughter born on Nov. 30, THESE ARE YOUR NUMBERS!

The winning ticket was sold at: Racetrac as a Quick Pick, at 3725 Pine Ridge Road, Naples.

Any Florida Lottery retailer can validate the winning ticket, but you have to still have it. Then you would go to Tallahassee to claim the money. I would be happy to drive you.

Maybe you've made the right play, maybe you haven't. Your heart speeds up, your stomach rumbles.

That's why it's called gambling.

ACTION is a view of the numbers, the psychology and the flavor of gambling here in South Florida, through our lens.

We do have one sure bet. There's something here for you.

NICK SORTAL began playing 3-card "gut" and "Indian poker" on high school band trips, moved on to "night baseball" and "pass the trash" during a Dr. Pepper-infused midnight game in the 1980s at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, and now play in a regular neighborhood Hold 'Em game in Plantation. I have been given the assignment of writing about the gambling life in South Florida casinos for the Sun-Sentinel...which means sitting around watching poker on TV now counts as research.
