Unclaimed Louisiana Mega Millions Prize Set to Expire in August
If you've got a few Mega Millions lottery tickets laying around that you just haven't check the numbers on - do it now! A pretty big, unclaimed prize won in February is set to expire next month. When that happens, you can kiss that sweet cash goodbye!
If you happened to be in Ponchatoula, stopped at the Carwash Depot, and picked up a ticket for the February 26th Mega Millions drawing - a $10,000 prize could very likely be waiting on you down at lottery headquarters! The lucky ticket in question (that could be in your glove box) hit 4 out of 5 numbers. By the way, the winning numbers were 10-12-14-24-60 and the Mega Ball was 20.
If you just know you've got it somewhere, get a move on! If it's not claimed by Friday, August 23rd at 5 p.m., it goes back into the lottery's unclaimed prize fund. That fund is reportedly used to increase the payouts on scratch-off games.
