A Mega Millions ticket worth $250,000 purchased in Eatontown last year is still unclaimed, the New Jersey State Lottery announced today.
The ticket was purchased on Dec. 27, 2011 at Street Corner News, a kiosk at the Monmouth Mall.
Claimants have one year from the draw date to claim their ticket or the prize will be forfeited. If the tickets remain unclaimed, those cash prizes go back to the Lottery and may be used for future prizes or state contributions.
The winning numbers were: 23, 32, 33, 39, 43, the Mega Ball: 8, Megaplier: 3.
This is one of three unclaimed tickets that will expire this month. The second was purchased in Orange on Dec. 23, 2011 and the third was bought in Mount Holly. Those tickets are worth $250,000 and $200,000, respectively.
The people holding these winning tickets are being asked to contact Lottery Headquarters immediately at 609-599-580 or to visit a local Lottery retailer to file their claim before their tickets expire.
