Texas Mega Millions Prize Expires Soon

Dec 09, 14 Texas Mega Millions Prize Expires Soon

Dec. 9, 2014 – A Mega Millions player in Texas won’t be able to call themselves lucky for much longer – a second-prize winning ticket sold in June is set to expire next week if no winner comes forward to claim the prize.

The $1 million ticket was purchased ahead of the June 17, 2014 Mega Millions drawing, and the Texas Lottery gives winners 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.

That means the winner has until  Sunday, Dec. 14 to come forward with the winning ticket, otherwise the $1 million prize will vanish.

The Texas Lottery isn’t open on the weekends, however, so the winner has two options: claim the prize before 5 p.m. Friday, when the Lottery’s claims centers close, or they can fill out a claims form and mail in the lucky ticket.  As long as the claim is postmarked Dec. 14 or earlier, the winner can claim their million bucks.

The winning numbers for the June 17 drawing were 10, 14, 24, 47, 60 and the Mega Ball was 3.  The Texas winner was the only player to win a second prize that day, and they bought their ticket at the Sellers Brothers Drive-In Grocery, located at 220 Preston St. in Pasadena.

The drawing featured a $15 million starting jackpot as it was the first drawing after Kelsey Zachow, a single mom from Michigan, won a $66 million jackpot.

Be sure to check your tickets – hopefully you’re a big winner and don’t know it yet!  If you do have winnings to claim, you can find the Texas Lottery’s claims form here, and a list of their claims centers here.
