MEGA Millions® Ticket Worth Over $800k Remains Unclaimed!
SACRAMENTO –Last month, two MEGA Millions tickets successfully matched five out of six numbers to win $811,997 each. Thirty days later, one of those tickets remains unclaimed.
The unclaimed ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven located at 2900 Hyperion Avenue in Los Angeles. The other winning ticket, which was sold at the USA Petroleum located at 1790 East Pleasant Valley in Oxnard, was claimed by mail. Both tickets successfully matched the numbers 4-16-5-53-18, missing only the Mega number of 28.
The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their ticket, keep tickets in a safe place and contact Lottery officials or visit their local Lottery District Office as soon as possible. Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes.
