OXFORD, Maine — The winner of a $2.6 million Megabucks Plus jackpot hasn’t come forward, according to an official at the Maine State Lottery.
Michael Boardman, marketing manager for the lottery, said it’s not unusual for winners to wait a week or two before coming forward with winning tickets. “Typically what happens is people are seeking financial advice,” Boardman said Tuesday.
The $2.6 million winning ticket was sold at Polly’s Variety on King Street. The drawing was last Wednesday, Oct. 28. Polly’s Variety will receive 1 percent of the winning total, or $26,000.
According to Boardman, the ticket expires 1 year from the draw date. The winning numbers were 10, 20, 30, 31, 33 and the Megaball was 4.
