Mega MillionsMega Millions: $250,000 Va. lottery ticket expires Monday

CHESTERFIELD, Va. — The clock is ticking on a Mega Millions ticket worth a quarter-of-a-million dollars.

The ticket was purchased last October in Chesterfield, Virginia, and no one has come forward to claim the prize. If the ticket is not redeemed by 5 p.m. Monday, it will expire.

The $250,000 ticket was bought at a gas station across from the Chesterfield County Courthouse on Oct. 13. The buyer matched the first five numbers to win the regional game's second-biggest payout.

The winning numbers from that drawing were 17, 31, 34, 45, and 51.  The Mega Ball number was 24.

            Bet it was somebody going to court across the street who went in the gas station to get a cup of coffee or a pack of smokes and bought the ticket on the spur of the moment, threw it in the glove compartment or console where it's still laying forgotten about right now. They'll come across it in a few months when they're looking for something else, notice the date is expired and throw it away, never being the wiser. And when you think about it, they're probably better off not knowing at that point.

                I use to buy tickets put them up and forget about them...nasty habit I had a few years ago...I wouldn't doubt it if I had a big win a few years back and didn't check the tickets and tossed them out.

                I DO NOT DO THAT ANY MORE!

                  I did the same thing years ago when the lottery first started. There's no tellin' what I threw out and I wouldn't want to know now!

                      You buy so many tickets and lose so many times that you sometimes just pile them up

                      somewhere after you buy them hoping one day you will check them.

                      That money's gone fo ever

                          Hopefully, someone comes forward before it's too late.
