(KCBD) - A $1 million Mega Millions ticket will soon expire. A Quick Pick ticket matching five of the six numbers drawn for the Dec. 1, 2017 drawing was purchased from Valero Corner Store #1307, located at 4600 W. William Cannon Drive in Austin, but the $1 million prize has not been claimed. The deadline to claim the prize is May 30 at 5 p.m. CDT. The winning numbers for the drawing were 16-22-40-41-59, Mega Ball 8.

"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.
