$250K lottery ticket unclaimed in Va.

By Mike McPhate

There’s $250,000 coming to a numbers player who bought a winning lottery ticket in Leesburg two weeks ago, according to an NBC4 report. That’s if the lucky person turns up.

The ticket -- winning numbers: 3, 4, 15, 27, 37 -- was purchased June 29 at the 7-Eleven on Dry Mill Road SW. The ticket matched the first five numbers but not the Mega Ball.

All unclaimed prize money goes to the state Literary Fund, which supports education, including school construction and renovation and teacher retirement funding. Since 1988, more than $190 million in unclaimed prizes has been transferred to the Literary Fund.

The holder of the ticket should call the Virginia Lottery at 804-692-7000 or 703-494-1501.
