$468,000 Up For Grabs as Mega Millions® Ticket Purchased in Bay Area Remains Unclaimed!
SACRAMENTO – Call it the ultimate cash grab. The California Lottery is on the hunt for someone who still hasn’t claimed their share of nearly half a million dollars! That lucky player matched five of six winning numbers in the May 9th Mega Millions drawing and has a ticket worth $468,905!
The ticket matched the numbers 39, 10, 59, 28 and 51, missing just the Mega number 14.
That winning ticket was purchased at San Leandro Express Liquors, which is located at 138 West Juana Avenue in San Leandro (Alameda County).
And if after scavenging through junk drawers and under couch cushions you don’t find the winning ticket, it’s okay because Tuesday’s Mega Millions jackpot is worth an estimated $55 million. And not to be outdone, Wednesday’s Powerball® jackpot is worth an estimated $257 million!
The California Lottery strongly urges the winner from last month’s draw to sign the back of their ticket in ink, keep it in a safe place then visit their local Lottery District Office as soon as possible. The winner has 180 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize.
Mega Millions is played in California (and 42 other states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). 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. Please visit the California Lottery’s Mega Millions site for more information on how to play.
The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 95 cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.
