July 27, 2010, a Mega Millions ticket that is worth $250,000 was purchased at McAleavy’s Newsstand at 10 E. Main St. in Somerville but has been unclaimed and according to the law in New Jersey the holder of the ticket has until July 27 to claim the $250,000 prize.
If the winner doesn’t claim the prize there is very little chance that they are going to be able to win again since the odds are stacked against them. Everyone that plays had a 1 in 3.9 million chance of predicting the five winning numbers minus the Mega Ball in the Mega Millions lottery. How could someone beat those odds and not be checking the first night to see if they won?
“The holder of this winning ticket should immediately sign the back of the ticket and call lottery headquarters or visit a local Lottery retailer to file their claim before the ticket expires,” New Jersey Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedinger said in a statement.
The winning Mega Millions game numbers drawn on July 27, 2010, were: 2, 7, 10, 16 and 29 and the gold Mega Ball number was 8.
