DENHAM SPRINGS-- If you bought a Powerball ticket at Jiffy Mart #5 in Denham Springs in late March, you may want to take a second look at your ticket.  You could have $10,000 with your name on it.

The winning numbers were drawn March 30, but no one has claimed the prize.  The winner has until September 26 to show the ticket, or the winnings to into an unclaimed prizes fund that's funneled into more winnings for other games, like scratch-offs.

Last year $8.5 million went into the unclaimed prizes fund.

"I'd pass out-- there'd be one fat man out cold," one powerball ticket purchaser told News 2 about how he'd react if he won.

The store sells about 100 tickets each day.

The winner matched four out of five white ball numbers: 19-20-42-56-58, along with the Powerball number 37.
