CHICAGO – Illinois Lottery officials are asking people to take another look at those old lottery tickets.

There are two unclaimed winning tickets that were purchased in Chicago almost a year ago. Players get one year from the drawing date to claim prize money.

One is for the $100,000 Lucky Day Lotto prize and another is a $250,000 Mega Millions prize.

Officials say the winning numbers in the Jan. 10 Lucky Day Lotto drawing were 14-17-22-29-38. The winning numbers in the Jan. 11 Mega Millions drawing were: 24-29-30-34-56-(01).

Prizes worth more than $600 have to be claimed at one of five Lottery prize centers in Chicago, Des Plaines, Springfield, Rockford and Fairview Heights.
