Lottery: $900,000 Mega Money ticket sold in Oakland Park about to expire

A Mega Money jackpot-winning ticket sold in Oakland Park worth $900,000 remains unclaimed and the 180-day limit to cash it in expires at midnight Aug. 3.

The numbers were drawn on Feb. 4 and were: 11-22-30-44, with a Megaball of 11.

The winning ticket was sold at 7-Eleven, located at 3800 N. Andrews Avenue in Oakland Park.

While any Florida Lottery retailer can validate the winning ticket, the jackpot must be claimed at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee. Players may obtain additional information by calling the Lottery’s Customer Service Department at 850-487-7787 or visiting the Florida Lottery’s website at

Mega Money is a $1 jackpot game drawn twice weekly, in which players win the jackpot by matching 4 of 4 winning numbers and the Megaball. The game offers jackpots starting at $500,000, with rollovers of up to $2 million if no one matches the four winning numbers plus the Megaball. Once the jackpot reaches $2 million, the jackpot rolls down, increasing the payouts on all of the lower-tier prizes.

About the author
Maybe you've made the right play, maybe you haven't. Your heart speeds up, your stomach rumbles.

That's why it's called gambling.

ACTION is a view of the numbers, the psychology and the flavor of gambling here in South Florida, through our lens.

We do have one sure bet. There's something here for you.

NICK SORTAL began playing 3-card "gut" and "Indian poker" on high school band trips, moved on to "night baseball" and "pass the trash" during a Dr. Pepper-infused midnight game in the 1980s at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, and now play in a regular neighborhood Hold 'Em game in Plantation. I have been given the assignment of writing about the gambling life in South Florida casinos for the Sun-Sentinel...which means sitting around watching poker on TV now counts as research.
