HAMPTON, Va. (AP) -- Time is running out for the winner of a $250,000 Mega Millions prize in Virginia to claim it.
The Virginia Lottery says a ticket bought for the April 19 drawing matched the first five numbers but missed the Mega Ball number. The winning numbers were 6-8-12-22-43 and the Mega Ball was 28.
The ticket was purchased at Bethel Valero in Hampton.
The Lottery said Thursday that the ticket will expire at 5 p.m. Oct. 16 if it isn't claimed. In Virginia, winners have 180 days after the drawing to claim their prizes.
