NJ Mega Millions lottery ticket due to expire Oct. 5

Mega MillionsMega Millions: NJ Mega Millions lottery ticket due to expire Oct. 5

TRENTON, NJ — New Jersey lottery players, check your wallet, clean out the drawers, dig into your pants' pockets because someone has a New Jersey Lottery Mega Millions ticket worth $250,000 that will expire on October 5, 2013 if it is not validated.

The Mega Millions ticket is a second tier winner from the October 5, 2012 drawing. The ticket was purchased at Wegman’s, 55 Route 9 South, Manalapan in Monmouth County.

The winning numbers for that drawing are 08, 09, 16, 32 and 39, with Mega Ball number 15.  The Megaplier Multiplier number is 3.

Ticket holders in New Jersey have one year from the date of game draw to claim their prize. This $250,000 ticket will officially expire on October 5, 2013.

Anyone holding this winning ticket should contact Lottery Headquarters at 609-599-5801 or visit a local Lottery retailer as soon as possible to file their claim.

The State receives a minimum of 30 percent of the unclaimed prize money annually to fund Lottery beneficiaries.  Special player promotions and Second Chance drawings, such as the Million Dollar Replay program, are also funded by the unclaimed prize fund, returning unclaimed winnings back to the Lottery playing public.

      I hope it is claimed before it expires.  250K is nothing to slouch at.

                I wonder if the winner was able to claim his prize? It's unfortunate if the winner lost his ticket, he could do a lot of things with his winnings. I hope players should take good care and keep the tickets they purchased.
