BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – A $25,000 Mega Millions lottery jackpot and a $5,000 Mega Millions prize expire next month if the holders of the winning tickets fail to come forward.
No one has claimed the $25,000 prize won for the Nov. 3 drawing. A ticket matched four of the five numbers and the Mega Ball to win $5,000. But because it included the $1 Megaplier option, the prize increased to $25,000 when the 5X multiplier was drawn.
The ticket was purchased at PR Interstate Fuel in Pearl River. It’s set to expire at 5 p.m. May 1. The winning numbers were 16, 29, 44, 69, 74 and the Mega Ball was 12.
The second prize was hit Nov. 13. It was purchased at Delta Mini Mart #2 in West Monroe and expires May 11.
The winning numbers were 17-18-31-35-59 and the Mega Ball number was 9.
