SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Someone is just hours away from losing the biggest lotto prize in Puerto Rico's history.

The person who bought the winning $32 million lotto ticket has until the end of Wednesday to claim the money.

The ticket was sold at a San Juan grocery store last June, but no one has stepped forward with the ticket.

The winner could choose between receiving $1.28 million a year for 20 years or a lump sum payment of $11.5 million.

The latter will go toward government coffers if a winner does not come forward.
