Mega Millions: Winning ticket sold in Indiana


There's just one ticket purchased for Friday night's Mega Millions drawing with the wining numbers, worth an estimated $540 million.

According to lottery officials, one ticket there hit the $540 million jackpot. As of midday Saturday, it had not been claimed. That person has not yet been identified, either.

Beth Leisure, who heads the local chamber of commerce, said she's "happy for whoever it is", even if the victor isn't from Cambridge City. A spokesman, Brandon Daniels, says the company has no comment. He says "we know the ticket was sold in IN, but being on I-70, who knows who bought it?"

It was the only jackpot winning ticket sold. The winning numbers were 8, 19, 20, 55 and 73, plus the Mega Ball 5.

Lottery officials announced a single winning ticket for the grand prize had been sold in Indiana. Those tickets were sold in Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey and Oklahoma.

"Everybody's wondering who it is", he said.

The current prize is the game's biggest since December 2013, when holders of two tickets sold in California and Georgia shared a US$648 million (NZ$888 million) jackpot.

If you were in IN and purchased a Mega Millions ticket, there is a very good chance you could to be a victor of the $540 million prize ($381 million cash)!
