LAST CHANCE: MD Lottery Looking for Unclaimed $250K Winner

It's last call for the lucky holder of a Mega Millions second tier winner who purchased the ticket in Timonium.

The owners of the 7-Eleven franchise on Beaver Dam Road in Timonium have all but given up hope on meeting the winner of a $250,000 Mega Millions ticket that was sold at their store.

The ticket was one of five winners sold on March 30—the same day the three Marylanders won a record-breaking $656 million Mega Millions grand prize. Now the deadline to claim the second-tier prize is quickly approaching.

The ticket must be claimed by Friday, Sept. 28 at 4:30 p.m.

Three of the four second-tier winners in Maryland were claimed in Baltimore, Boonsboro and Bel Air, although the ticket purchased in Timonium remains at large.

"It's very uncommon," Erica Palmisano, a Maryland Lottery spokeswoman said. 

Only three big money tickets since 1986 have gone unclaimed, according Palmisano.

  • $1.5 million Lotto ticket in January 1986
  • $1 million Lotto ticket in September 1991
  • $250,000 second-tier Mega Millions ticket in August 2010

The winning numbers were: 2 - 4 - 23 - 38 - 46. (Second tier winners only have to match five numbers, without the bonus match ball.)

There were 161 $250,000 winners across the country, according to the Mega Millions website.

No doubt reading your comment you will never be comfortable financially since reading your desecration of the English language you will never find a job that pays more than a scratch off win.
