California Lottery officials have confirmed that no one has claimed the $13 million SuperLotto Plus prize won nearly two weeks ago. The winning numbers for the drawing held on the 18th of October were 9, 12, 15, 23 and 40 with Mega Number 16. The winning ticket was purchased for $1 at a Circle K convenience store in Simi Valley, located 30 miles away from downtown Los Angeles.
The lucky ticket holder has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize, which means that they need to get in touch with lottery officials by mid-April 2015. If no one steps forward by that time, then the prize money will be transferred to school districts across California.
California Lottery spokesperson Greg Parashak stated that many big prize winners donâ€™t realize that theyâ€™ve won until well after the drawing has taken place, usually because theyâ€™ve put the ticket away and donâ€™t remember that they bought it.
If you bought a SuperLotto Plus ticket in the last month in Simi Valley, then now is the time to turn your house, car and work desk upside down, as you could be in possession of the winning ticket!
