DALLAS – You could be a millionaire. 

The executive director of the Texas Lottery is encouraging Powerball players to "take another look at their ticket" and "check their numbers again" as the deadline to claim a million dollar prize associated with the Dec. 10, 2016, Powerball drawing is June 8.

If a ticket goes unclaimed for 180 days, the ticket holder forfeits any claim to a prize - save for an exception for "eligible" military personnel.

The ticket, which was purchased from a Dollar & Dollars at 3462 Webb Chapel Ext. in Dallas, matched five of six numbers drawn that evening.

The winning numbers in that drawing were...

12-21-32-44-66, Powerball 15

If the ticket is not claimed by June 8, the money will go to the state for programs authorized by the Texas Legislature, a release said.
