$250K lottery prize to expire July 5

A Virginia Lottery player’s loss may soon become the state Literary Fund’s $250,000 gain.

Lottery officials say a Mega Millions ticket worth $250,000 that was sold for the Jan. 4 drawing remains unclaimed. It will expire at 5 p.m. July 5 if the winner doesn’t come forward.

By law, winning tickets expire 180 days after a drawing. Unclaimed prize money goes to the Literary Fund, which helps pay for school construction and teacher retirement.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in the Richmond suburb of Short Pump.
