Okay, $174,575 is not exactly a million bucks. But wouldn’t you take it if it were offered to you?
That is the winning amount for a Mega Millions ticket that was purchased at a convenience store in Corona, California. And the winner has yet to step forward and claim it. Today is the last day he or she can do so.
Lottery jackpost have gone unclaimed before in California. When this happens, the winnings are donated to the state’s schools. So far, about $50 million has been donated in this fashion.
Check those tickets, people!
