The Maryland Lottery needs help to find the owners of two soon-to-expire $1 million winning tickets that have not been claimed yet.

A $1 million Mega Million ticket was sold at 7701 German Hill Road in Dundalk for the January 8 drawing. The ticket matches all five of the white balls (11, 39, 51, 57, and 75) but did not match the Mega Ball. The ticket is set to expire on July 8 at 4:30 p.m.

A  $1 million Powerball ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven located at 4907 Annapolis Road in Bladensburg in Prince George's county for the January 13 drawing. The ticket matches all five of the white balls (4, 8, 19, 27, 34) but did not match the Power Ball, which was 10. The ticket is set to expire July 13 at 4:30p.m. 

Winners of all Maryland Lottery drawing games have 182 days after the drawings to claim their prizes at Lottery headquarters, located at 1800 Washington Boulevard in Baltimore. The Customer Resource Center is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the winners may arrive at any time during those hours.

“This is exciting for us because when we greet big prize winners, we’re meeting them on one of happiest days of their lives,” said Maryland Lottery and Gaming Director Gordon Medenica. “We’re eager to award these prizes and make two new Maryland Lottery millionaires!”

If the winners do not come forward to claim their prizes in time, the money will be deposited into the Maryland Lottery’s Unclaimed Prize Fund, which helps to pay for the Lottery’s second-chance contests and promotions.
