BATON ROUGE - A $25,000 Louisiana Lottery Mega Millions prize won for the Nov. 3, 2015, drawing is close to expiring.

Lottery officials say the winning ticket was purchased at PR Interstate Fuel on Highway 1090 in Pearl River and is set to expire at 5 p.m. on May 1.

The ticket matched four of the five white-ball numbers drawn and the yellow Mega Ball number to win $5,000. It also included the $1 Megaplier option, which increased the prize to $25,000 when the Megaplier number 5X was drawn.

The numbers drawn were: 16-29-44-69-74 and the Mega Ball number was 12.

After the redemption deadline, prizes are returned to the lottery's unclaimed prize fund. That money goes to players in the form of increased payouts on scratch-off games and player promotions.
