A San Ysidro pizzeria is offering a prize to Mega Millions losers who missed out on the $1.6 billion record jackpot.
Villa Italian Kitchen is offering a free Neapolitan Cheese pizza slice with a purchase of a beverage to people who bring in their losing ticket. The offer is valid for Wednesday only.
“When we heard what the odds of winning the jackpot were, we couldn’t help but feel for all those who would be let down," said Mimi Wunderlich, Villa Italian Kitchen's director of communications and digital marketing. "While a free slice of pizza isn’t a billion dollars, hopefully it will still make someone’s day.”
The pizzeria says only original tickets will be accepted. Limit one per customer.
Villa Italian closes at 9 p.m. More information is available online.
