BARRINGTON, N.H. — New Hampshire lottery officials say the winner of a $1.5 million jackpot has yet to come forward to claim the prize.

The Tri-State Megabucks Plus ticket was purchased at George Calef Fine Foods in Barrington on July 10.

Commission spokeswoman Maura McCann says it is likely the winner doesn’t yet know their ticket is worth big bucks.

She tells Foster’s Daily Democrat that sometimes people leave tickets sitting out on their bureau or the dashboard of their car for days before checking to see if it won.

The winner will be able to choose between a lump sum of $750,000 after taxes or the full $1.5 million in annual payments over 30 years.

Winners get one year from the draw date to claim their prize.
