Nipomo lottery ticket remains unclaimed

May 16, 2012

It has now been two months since someone purchased a MEGA Millions ticket in Nipomo worth $326,163, and so far, no one has come forward to claim the prize.

Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes.

The ticket was sold at Stop N Buy, which is located at 459 West Tefft Street in Nipomo. It matched the numbers 43, 51, 53, 29, and 28, missing only the Mega number of 7.

California Lottery officials remind winners to sign the back of their ticket, keep tickets in a safe place and contact Lottery officials as soon as possible.

MEGA Millions is a multi-state game, played in California and 43 other jurisdictions. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 56 plus a Mega number from 1 to 46.

If I won a Mega Million Lottery,

and everyone in SLO knew I won it,

I would take a long vacation,

and maybe relocate.

The problem is I love SLO and want to stay here,

and by being able to stay here,

I would invest and spend a lot here, a great amount, including industry that would stir employment so that our kids can stay here.


Being known and having white-collar psychologist pester me they know better for me,

And constantly worrying at being at risk to the criminal element psychology,

As well as scam artist with our brightest attorneys trying to create frivolous law suits

I would move the hell out of here!

As for the $326,163 minus 25% tax to the Federal IRS,

I will stick around SLO, a place I love dearly,

the net proceeds simply pays off the home mortgage, buys a new car for the wife, and covers the initial investment for the kids college savings.

Finally in black ink, broke, and just maintaining basic expenses.
