RALEIGH, N.C. — The deadline has passed withoutsomeone claiming $800,000 from the Oct. 17, 2007, Powerball drawing.

The winning ticket was sold at Jai Mataji Inc. at 121 Julian Place in Troutman in Iredell County. That ticket matched five white balls and the Power Play multiplier, meaning the $200,000 prize was increased to $800,000.

The money goes back in the pot – half to the North Carolina Education Lottery Fund, half toward future prizes.
