If checking your lottery numbers over the past few days hasn't been at the top of your mind we can certainly understand. But, if you have a few minutes and you happened to have purchased a Mega Millions lottery ticket for last Friday, the 25th, you could be holding on to a nice chunk of change.

Officials with the Louisiana Lottery say a Mega Millions ticket purchased the Circle K on Fortune Road in Youngsville is worth $5,000. The ticket matched four of the five white balls and it also matched the Mega Ball.

The numbers for the Friday, August 25, 2017, drawing were:

17 38 42 51 65 MB11 

If you're holding that ticket or know someone who is you can tell them they'll need to check with the Louisiana Lottery office to see about getting their prize.  Speaking of prizes, the Mega Millions drawing is tonight, it's worth $45 million if you can match all five white balls and the Mega Ball.
