The $33 million jackpot from Friday's Mega Millions lottery draw is looking for its owner.

"If you purchased a Mega Millions ticket in Moulton, check your numbers because you might be a millionaire," said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery.

Lottery officials announced Saturday the quick pick ticket was purchased at the Moulton Grocery & Market, a gas station and minimart in the 100 block of South Lavaca Drive.

The store will receive a $330,000 bonus for selling the ticket, according to a news release.

Attempts to reach management were unsuccessful.

Mega Millions players win the jackpot by correctly matching five numbers from a field of 75, plus the Mega Ball number from a field of 15, according to a news release. The winning numbers for the Moulton ticket were 15-29-31-46-64, with a Mega Ball of 10.

The Mega Millions win was a first for Texas after rules were revised to create longer odds and bigger jackpots in October by the 43-state lottery and marks the 11th time the Texas Lottery sold a Mega Millions jackpot-winning ticket since joining the game in December 2003, according to its website.

The ticket holder has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim the prize.
