MegaMillions prize expires soonFriday April 22nd 2011
Time and time again we see huge lottery prizes go to good causes because winners fail to come forward and make a claim in time. A last ditch appeal is being sent out for a MegaMillions prize that expires soon. This lottery prize is for $250,000 and the winning ticket holder has until 4th May to step forward, otherwise this fortune will be used to support other causes within the state of Pennsylvania where it was purchased.
The MegaMillions draw in question took place on 4th May 2010 and was purchased from the Carlisle Pedro Stopping Center, 1201 Harrisburg Avenue, Carlisle, Cumberland County. So if you may hold a lottery ticket for this draw, then now might be a good time to check if you are the elusive winner as there is just two weeks to go before this MegaMillions prize expires.
Now that a year has almost passed by, it is likely that the winner has either misplaced or lost the ticket and the Pennsylvania Lottery again stresses the importance of filling in the back of your lottery tickets as soon as you get them, so that it makes it easier for the rightful owner to be tracked down. Of course this also prevents people from claiming a prize from a lotto ticket that doesn’t belong to them.
For those who would like to buy lottery tickets for the next MegaMillions draw which will take place today, you will be playing for an estimated jackpot of $19 million. Alternatively, the Pennsylvania Lottery also offers the PowerBall to their players. The next draw for this game is on Saturday and there is a $72 million jackpot up for grabs.
