$1 Million Lottery Ticket Still Not Claimed
The Mega Millions® ticket worth $1 million from last Friday night’s drawing has still not been claimed. The winning ticket was sold at Super 1 Foods, 2800 Hazel in Pine Bluff.
The winning numbers were 20, 36, 61, 62 and 69. The player matched the five white balls, but not the Megaball® number 20.
Because this lottery prize is more than $500, it must be claimed at the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery’s (ASL) Claim Center located at 124 W. Capitol Ave. in Little Rock either in person or by mail.
“We are aware of a claim on social media by an individual claiming to be the owner of the winning ticket. However, we have not received a formal claim in our Claim Center, and we continue to urge all players to check their tickets,” said Eric Hagler, ASL executive director. “Winners have 180 days from the lottery game drawing date to claim their prize.”
Retailers receive a 1 percent commission from the sale of winning lottery products, which means the Super 1 Foods in Pine Bluff will receive $10,000 in commission once the winner claims his prize.
The Mega Millions jackpot for tomorrow night’s drawing has climbed to $480 million.
