July 8 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin man claimed a nearly $6 million lottery prize 10 days before the ticket expired, state lottery officials announced Monday.
Matthew Neal claimed the $5.9 million Megabucks jackpot Friday, six months after the drawing. The deadline to claim the prize was July 15.
He purchased the ticket Jan. 16 at a gas station in Sheboygan. It was the largest Megabucks prize since 2015.
Neal's ticket matched all six numbers -- 1, 5, 28, 29, 37 and 44.
