Five $250,000 Mega Millions Tickets Remain UnclaimedWednesday, August 5th, 2009
Friday Night’s Jackpot Rises to $102 Million
Five Marylanders may be $250,000 richer and not even know it. There are currently five Mega Millions second-tier tickets that remain unclaimed this year. And, since there was no jackpot winner last night, Friday night’s drawing now has a jackpot of $102 million.
One of the tickets was purchased at Mars #10 on Belair Rd. in Nottingham for the February 13th drawing. The final claim date is fast approaching – the ticket must be claimed by August 14th. All Mega Millions prizes must be claimed within 182 days of the drawing date. The other unclaimed tickets, which have a little longer lifespan, are:
April 7th Drawing – Purchased at 7-11 on Davidsonville Rd in Crofton
June 23rd Drawing – Purchased at Royal Farm on Pulaski Highway in Elkton
July 28th Drawing – Purchased at York Exxon in Cockeysville
July 31st Drawing – Purchased at Cherry Hill Sunoco in Silver Spring
Since January, Maryland has sold 24 second-tier Mega Millions $250,000 winning tickets. In addition, 119 players have won the third-tier $10,000 prize. Mega Millions drawings take place on Tuesday and Friday evenings, and can be viewed on WBAL-TV Channel 11 at 11:22 PM.
