It’s worth $1-million, and winner has until the end of the year to claim the prize.
Baltimore, Md (KM). The winner of a $1-million Mega Millions ticket sold recently in Frederick County has still not come forward, and that person has until end of the year to claim the prize.
Gail Pelovitz, Drawings Manager for Special Games and Promotions for the Maryland Lottery, says the ticket was sold on June 21st at the Sheetz store on Woodsboro Pike in Walkersville. The winning numbers from the drawing that same day are 13, 30,36, 48 and 62; and the Mega Ball number is 18. Pelovitz says the winner got all bu the Mega Ball correctly.
Pelovitz says if you are that winner, you need to act quickly. “Sigh the back of the ticket. Once it’s signed, it’s that person’s ticket. If they lose it, nobody can claim it. It’s theirs,” she says. “Keep it somewhere safe.”
And then come to the Maryland Lottery headquarters in Baltimore at 1800 Washington Blvd., Suite 330 Bring a photo Identification, and proof of your Social Security number. “They come in, fill out the paperwork and claim the prize,” says Pelovitz.
She notes you can remain anonymous if you wish.
The winner has until December 20th, 2019 to claim the prize. If not, the money goes into the unclaimed prize fund. “Any money that goes in there has to go back to the players in the form of prizes,” says Pelovitz. “So we use that to fund a lot of our second chance promotions.”
There are also two unclaimed $10,000 prizes sold in Frederick. One was sold at the Ballenger Beer and Spirits on Ballenger Creek Pike for the May 28th drawing, and the other was sold at the Weis Market at 110 Thomas Johnson Drive for the June 21st drawing.
The Maryland Lottery says it contributed $1.252-billion to the state in fiscal year 2017. .
