A million-dollar lottery ticket purchased at a Matthews gas station is set to expire Wednesday. The ticket would be the largest ever to go unclaimed in North Carolina. Some lucky person walked into the Market Express on Monroe Road on August 20 and picked all five winning numbers for the MegaMillions lottery: 4-13-20-29-48.
And that's where the luck ended.
That person has yet to claim the million dollar prize and Market Express manager Esther Roach isn't too hopeful. "It had to have been someone that threw it away in error," says Roach. "I'm sure."
