The Texas Lottery is searching for a Mega Millions winner who has only one day left to claim a $1 million prize.
Texas Lottery officials said the ticket, which matched winning numbers 16, 22, 40, 41, and 59, but not the Mega Ball 8, in the Dec. 1, 2017, drawing, will expire at 5 p.m. CDT Wednesday.
The ticket was purchased from Valero Corner Store #1307 in Austin, officials said.
"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.
A ticket holder forfeits any claim to a prize for a draw game after the expiration of the 180th day following the draw date. The deadline may be extended for a period of time for certain "eligible" military personnel. Unclaimed prizes revert back to the state for programs authorized by the Texas Legislature.
