Los Angeles MEGA Millions® Winners Still Unclaimed
SACRAMENTO – California Lottery officials are on the lookout for not one, but two lucky Lottery players in Los Angeles who both managed to match five of six numbers in MEGA Millions draws. One of the tickets was purchased in Los Angeles one month ago and is worth $197,117, while the other was purchased in Los Angeles nearly four months ago and is worth $179,428.
Last month’s winner was sold at Lorena Market, which is located at 3360 East Olympic Boulevard in Los Angeles. The ticket successfully matched five of six numbers – 22, 56, 13, 20, 4, and missed only the Mega number of 32.
The other winning ticket – sold for the May 4 draw – was purchased at El Mexicano Market, which is located at 6625 South Avalon Boulevard in Los Angeles. The ticket successfully matched five of six numbers – 21, 9, 36, 43, 31, and missed only the Mega number of 8. This ticket expires on December 1.
The California Lottery reminds each winner to sign the back of their ticket, keep the ticket 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.
