If you have a ticket -- you do
have a chance to win.
You need to read the regulations. In some states unredeemed/unsold winners are added to prize pools in other games -- just like casinos can do with progressive jackpots. The only rule -- again, in some states -- is that the prize was available to everyone who played and, that the money is eventually paid out. If, OTOH, the state knew
it held one of the winners and it was not for sale -- they would be obligated to remove it from the prizes available.
