MEGA Millions® Ticket Sold in Santa Monica Still Unclaimed After 1 Month


SACRAMENTO – A lucky Lottery player who bought their ticket in Santa Monica has yet to claim their prize worth more than $200,000.  Their ticket matched five of six numbers and won $207,820 in the MEGA Millions draw from July 26, 2011.

The lucky ticket was sold at Lucky Liquor at 2125 Lincoln Boulevard in Santa Monica. The ticket matched the numbers 52, 35, 55, 20 and 25, missing only the Mega number of 10.

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.

MEGA Millions is a multistate game, played in California and 41 other states. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 56 plus a Mega number from 1 to 46. Draw times are Tuesdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. PST. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers.

Since 2000, Lottery players have contributed $1 billion to public schools each year, and, since we began in 1985, Lottery players have contributed a total of more than $24 billion to education.
