A $1 million Mega Millions ticket expired today and the prize went to the state School Aid Fund.
The ticket expired at 4:45 p.m. It was purchased at the CVS Pharmacy, located at 3090 Carpenter Road in Ypsilanti.
Mega Millions tickets are valid for one year from the date of the drawing. Because March 2 fell on a Saturday, the ticket expired today.
It was the second major prize to go unclaimed in 2019. In January, a $250,000 Powerball prize went unclaimed.
The record for an unclaimed Lottery prize in Michigan is $34 million. It was set in 1998, when a winning Michigan Lotto game ticket, purchased at the Meijer located at 1350 West Lake Lansing Road in East Lansing, went unclaimed.
