Appeal for MegaMillions winnerFriday July 16th 2010
Officials from the Virginia Lottery have issued an appeal for a MegaMillions winner to come forward to claim their prize. The draw which took place on 29th June saw the lucky ticket holder match five of the winning numbers drawn to bag themselves a massive £250,000 prize. Although lottery winners do have 180 days to make their claim, it is usual that those who win an amount as high as this make their claims almost immediately. If this player is not aware of their MegaMillions win yet, then it is important to get this appeal across, because as time passes the winning ticket is more likely to be discarded unchecked or lost.
This winning Mega Millions ticket was purchased from a Leesburg 7-eleven in June, and the winning numbers were 3, 4, 15, 27, and 37. If you bought lotto tickets from one of these outlets and for this MegaMillions draw in particular, then you could be sitting on a quarter of a million prize and not even realise, so search out those lottery tickets now and check to see if you are a lucky winner.
The owner of the store feels that it is highly like that he knows this lucky MegaMillions winner as 95% of his lottery ticket sales are to regular customers who play every week.
In the meantime, we can also bring you the exciting news that there is a massive $64 million jackpot to play MegaMillions for on Friday as there has been no jackpot winner on this lottery game since 22nd June.
