Mega Millions Ticket worth $36M Expires 2/11/2024
On Thursday the Florida lottery announced that a Mega Millions winning ticket worth $36M had yet to be claimed. This ticket was sold at a Jacksonville Publix located at 4495 Roosevelt Boulevard. This particular winning ticket was from a drawing held on August 15th 2023.
The numbers drawn were 18, 39, 42, 57, and 63. The Mega Ball number was 7 and the Multiplier was 3X. The person who purchased this ticket had 180 days from the draw date to claim the prize. Yes, the ticket expires today but the Florida Lottery Headquarters is closed. The person would have had to be there by 4:00 p.m. on Friday.
Sadly if the prize is over $1M, the winner must claim it at the Florida Lottery Headquarters. According to lottery officials, there is no way a person can mail it in because the prize is over $250K. Please don’t ever let this happen to you. If you purchase a lottery ticket and miss the drawing, you can always check their website. Stay updated at Floridalottery.com.
Have You Ever Threw Something Important Away?
I don’t know what happened to this winning lottery ticket. My guess is that the person accidentally threw the ticket away. This has happened to me before but it was not a lottery ticket. I once threw away $1K! I know, how the heck does that happen?
I went and got cash out of the bank to pay my rent, and put the envelope in a bag. The bag that I put it in was the bag that I threw out. $1K just gone down the drain. When I went back to the gas station, the trash was empty. Do you have a similar story, email me email@example.com
