BRIGHTON BEACH - Rocco Deli and Bakery in Brighton Beach sold a $130 million Powerball ticket one month ago, but the lucky ticket holder has yet to cash in on the prize.

Four other stores in Brooklyn have unclaimed winning tickets that all expire in 2014.

Gaming officials say about $800 million worth of lottery prizes go unclaimed every year.

Officials say people who win a million dollars with their ticket sometimes don't check their numbers, because once they hear the news that there's no jackpot winner, they assume they've lost.
