Only a Week Left for $1 Million Mega Millions Winner to Claim Prize
Cleaning off the top of your dresser could be worth a million dollars this week. A lot of people could be turning their house upside in the Ypsilanti area. That's because there's only a week left for the winner of a $1 million Mega Millions prize to claim the big pile of cash!
The Lottery Bureau says a lucky player matched the five white balls - 24-28-42-60-64 - drawn March 2, 2018 to win $1 million. The player purchased the winning ticket at the CVS Pharmacy, located at 3090 Carpenter Road in Ypsilanti.
The winner should contact the Michigan Lottery Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to schedule an appointment to collect the big prize. The prize must be claimed at the Lottery's headquarters in Lansing.
Mega Millions tickets are valid for one year from the drawing date. Since March 2 falls on a Saturday, the prize must be claimed by 4:45 p.m. on Monday, March 4.
If the prize isn't claimed before the ticket expires, the money will go to the state School Aid Fund. It would be the second major prize to go unclaimed in 2019. In January, a $250,000 Powerball prize went unclaimed.
Playing a regular set of numbers might actually save you having to tear the house apart, but again, if your numbers are 24-28-42-60-64, the clock is ticking!
