BROOKLYN - With just four days to go, the New York Lottery is issuing crude sketches of the winner in hopes that someone claims the $7 million jackpot before it expires.

The lottery player, who apparently has no idea how lucky they are, bought the winning Cash4Life ticket on July 24, 2014 at Milky Way Deli on Ralph Avenue in Brooklyn.

“We’re making one last effort to find the winner of this $7,000,000 jackpot prize, but there are only four days left to claim it,” said Gardner Gurney, Acting Director of the Division of the Lottery. “We are urging players to check and double-check their tickets one last time before it is too late.”

The winning numbers on the ticket are 05, 20, 35, 43, 48 and the Cash Ball number is 03.

For the lucky individual who finds the ticket stuffed into the pocket of that old pair of shorts, or tucked into last year's beach bag, officials recommend signing the back of the ticket and contacting them immediately at (518) 388-3370.

“I wish that was my face on that picture,” a deli patron told PIX11 News Thursday. If the jackpot is not claimed by Friday, the $7 million that’s at stake will be recycled into the prize pool for future winners.

If no one steps forward before the year expires, the money will roll into the prize pool for future winners.
