Whoever bought a Mega Millions ticket worth nearly $171,000 at Naval Base San Diego for the Sept. 14 drawing has less than a month left to claim the prize, the California Lottery announced Thursday.
The ticket–it matched winning numbers 40, 21, 51, 16 and 17 but not the Mega number, 20–was bought at the Escape Snack Bar.
The deadline to claim the cash is March 13, according to the lottery.
If the holder of the ticket is deployed, he or she can mail it to a lottery office and include copies of their identification, or have a friend take it to an office, lottery officials said.
Past and current draw results can be obtained by calling 800-568-8379, or online at calottery.com.
