Time is running out for a $4m Illinois Lottery prize. With just 30 days left for the mystery millionaire to come forward, lottery officials have put out an urgent appeal for players to check and re check tickets for the February 23rd, 2018 Mega Millions drawing.

Look Under Sofa"If you think you bought a ticket for this drawing, you may want to check your pockets, behind the sofa or wherever you may have placed a winning lottery ticket," the Illinois Lottery said in a statement.

It’s been almost a year since the ticket was purchased at the BP located at 1955 W. Cermak Rd but somebody, somewhere, must know something about the winning numbers, 7, 11, 13, 19, 58 and the Megaplier number 4 for a prize of $4 million.

The unclaimed ticket is one of four seven-figure Illinois Lottery prizes currently unclaimed, totaling $8.3 million, officials said.

The three other unclaimed prizes include:

$1 million Powerball prize: The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at Super Price, 2511 W. Cermak Rd., in Chicago and matched all five numbers — 11, 16, 38, 50, and 69 — in the May 9 drawing.

$2 million Lucky Day Lotto prize: The winning ticket was purchased at Minuteman, 6900 Kingery Hwy., in Willowbrook and matched all five numbers — 3, 7, 8, 9, and 23 — to win the jackpot in the midday drawing on June 29, 2018.

$1.3 million Lucky Day Lotto prize: The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at Oak Pantry and Deli, 6925 Joliet Rd., in Indian Head Park and matched all five numbers — 19, 35, 39, 43, and 45 — to win the jackpot in the midday drawing on Dec. 18, 2018.
