Josh Einiger reports from TriBeCa.

TRIBECA, Manhattan (WABC) -- Check your old lottery tickets!

There's a multimillionaire out there who still hasn't claimed their prize, and there's only a few days left to come forward.

The single winning ticket for the May 25th, 2016 lotto drawing was bought at "Renu Corp Grocery and Tobacco."

It's on Church Street at Chambers Street in TriBeCa.

The prize is $24 million!

"That's big money," said Bobby Patel, store owner.

The winning numbers in the New York State Lottery drawing from May 25, 2016 were 5, 12, 13, 22, 25, and 35. The bonus number was 51.

Players have one year after the drawing to claim the winnings, meaning they have until next week.

"They are going to lose the money if they don't cash the ticket," Patel said.
