A $1 million Mega Millions ticket that was bought in Texas is set to expire soon.

It was from the drawing on New Year's Day. The ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven store in Richardson, but the $1 million ticket has still not been claimed.

If claimed, the person must go to a Texas Lottery center by June 28 at 5 p.m.

The winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn, 34 44 57 62 70, but not the Mega Bell number, 14.

“We encourage our Mega Millions players to take another look at their ticket, check the numbers again and if your numbers match, sign the back of the ticket and contact us,” said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery.

The ticket holder forfeits any claim to the prize after the expiration date. The deadline may be extended for a period of time for a certain "eligible" military personnel.

If the prize is still unclaimed, it will go back to the state for programs authorized by the Texas Legislature.
