$99M Mega Millions Ticket Bought In Virginia Unclaimed

Posted: Updated:

FARMVILLE, Va. (AP) - A winning Mega Millions ticket worth $99 million remains unclaimed more than a month after the drawing.

The ticket sold in Farmville matched all six numbers in the May 17 drawing. The holder will split the $198 million jackpot with the holder of another winning ticket bought in New Jersey.

The ticket bought in New Jersey has been claimed.

The Virginia Lottery says the holder of the winning ticket bought in Farmville has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim the prize. They can choose either a one-time cash option of about $73 million before taxes, or the full amount in 26 annual payments.

The winning numbers for the May 17 drawing were 11-15-35-43-49. The Mega Ball was 41.
