Deadline approaching for unclaimed $1 million Mega Millions ticket sold in Maryland

Maryland Lottery is still searching for the winner of a Mega Millions lottery ticket worth $1 million that was purchased earlier this year in Prince George's County. Officials say the ticket has yet to be claimed and will expire on Christmas Day.

The winning $1 million ticket was purchased at the Tantallon Exxon at 10815 Indian Head Highway in Fort Washington back on June 26. The winning numbers were 17, 25, 29, 39, 60, and Mega Ball 19.

Winning tickets must be claimed within 182 days from the drawing date, according to Maryland Lottery.

If you have the $1 million ticket, you will need to bring it to the Maryland Lottery Customer Resource Center at 1800 Washington Boulevard in Baltimore. Also, make sure to bring photo identification and proof of your social security number.

Acceptable forms of photo identification are a valid driver's license, valid military ID, valid government issued ID, valid passport. Acceptable proof of your social security number or Tax ID are an original signed Social Security card, health insurance card containing your name and social security number, a
W-2 form or a pay stub issued by their employer or a 1099 form issued by a bank or other financial institution.

Although the Baltimore office will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, Maryland Lottery says it will work with the winner if they redeem their ticket on Wednesday.

"If someone is holding the winning $1 million Mega ticket, we want to tell them to put it in a safe place and enjoy Christmas," Maryland Lottery told FOX 5 in a statement. "Come on in to the Lottery the day after Christmas with your ticket and we'll work with you to make this a great holiday for all!"

Maryland has sold three winning $1 million Mega Millions tickets this year.
