Mega Millions officials said a single ticket, worth $152 million ($91.7m cash payout) had been sold by the Flying J Plaza stop at the Limestone exit off Interstate 80 in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania.
The winning ticket numbers, picked July 21, were 20, 30, 62, 65 and 74 with a Mega Ball number 1.
Store manager Pali Grewal said he didn’t know what to think when he heard the store sold the wining Mega Millions ticket. He said he was happy for the person who has the winning ticket and wished that person good luck.
For selling the winning Mega Millions ticket, the store will receive $100,000.
Grewal said it would be nice to receive that money.
No one has yet come forward to claim the winnings, and the manager said the winner could hail from any part of the country. He said the store is always selling lottery tickets to people from around the country. Grewal said it’s anyone’s guess who the winner is.
According to the state’s lottery officials, if the winner accepts the cash prize, it’ll be the fourth-largest prize in the state’s history. In order for the prize to be paid out, the ticket must be claimed and validated by officials to ensure the winner can be identified. Winners of the Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions jackpot have one year from the date of Mega Millions drawing to claim their prize.
The commission encourages holders to sign the back of the winning ticket. They’ll need to call the agency and file a claim, which can be done from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
