Lottery prize still unclaimed

April 26, 2005

WILLIAMSPORT - The wait continued Monday for the person who bought a winning lottery ticket at the Sheetz convenience store on South Artizan and East Potomac streets to step forward.

A Sheetz spokeswoman said Monday the winner had not claimed the $175,000 prize.

According to a news release issued by Maryland Lottery last week, the winner purchased a Mega Millions ticket that matched five of the six numbers drawn April 15. The winning numbers for the drawing, which had a top prize of $144 million, were 25, 26, 37, 39, 49 and 29.

A Maryland Lottery spokesperson could not be reached for comment Monday after 5:30 p.m.

According to the Mega Millions Web site, there were 20 tickets sold nationally that won a $175,000 prize, including two from Maryland. The site stated that each ticket was missing "only the Mega Ball number (29)."

The site stated there was a winning ticket for the Mega Millions top prize, which grew to $205 million, in the April 22 drawing. That ticket was purchased in Michigan, according to the site.
