A golden ticket is about to turn to dust, unless someone acts fast.

California lottery officials are urging every lottery player in Benicia to spend the day checking their old tickets because someone is still holding a Mega Millions ticket worth $796,000, but it must be turned in by 5 p.m. today.

The ticket was purchased at the CVS Pharmacy on 2100 Columbus Parkway in Benicia on Sep. 29 of last year.

The winning numbers are 45-21-50-25-2 and the Mega number is 21, the only number the ticket didn't have.

Again, if you are holding that golden ticket, you must contact lottery officials by 5 p.m. today to redeem it.
