Louisiana News

PONCHATOULA, La. (AP) — An unclaimed $10,000 Mega Millions ticket sold in Louisiana is expiring soon.

Lottery officials say no one has claimed the prize won during the Feb. 26 drawing.

WDSU-TV reports the winning ticket was purchased at The Carwash Depot in Ponchatoula and is set to expire Aug. 25. It matched four of the five white-ball numbers drawn and the yellow Mega Ball number to win.

The winning numbers were 10-12-14-24-60 and the Mega Ball was 20.

The ticket holder has until 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23, to claim the prize since the actual expiration date falls on a weekend.

Any prizes not claimed within 180 days are deposited into the lottery’s unclaimed prize fund, which is returned to players in the form of increased payouts on scratch-off games and player promotions.
